The Exhibition

The 35th anniversary exhibition
by Louise G. de Tonnacour

“Art is the expression of man’s pleasure in work”, William Morris.  I had this quotation in mind while visiting the Beaconsfield Rug Hooking Guild exhibition. This two day event, marking the 35th anniversary of the guild, took place on the 25th and 26th of September 2010.  


On this occasion, visitors were able to view an excellent retrospective of the work done by the artists and artisans of the association.  In all the rugs, large or small, one could take the time to study the technique, the originality of the design and the choice of colours.  The ladies of the guild guided guests through the technical aspects of rug hooking, however, I noticed, they remained humble to praise. Within the guild, there are three decades of know-how, learning and teaching experience and lots of memories.  Week after week, members meet to work together, each according to their own style.  Of course, newcomers to the guild bring new ideas, but thanks…
