Home Front - Newport during the First World War, 10 September – 29 October
By Level V Textile Group
In the centenary of the First World War there are many commemorations of the battles fought and the men who died. However, what is often overlooked is how this devastating war touched and altered everyday lives at home. This is the aspect of the First World War that Level V wanted to explore. Level V are a group of textile artists who came together while studying City & Guilds Creative Embroidery and this is the group’s first exhibition.
