Birmingham Day Out

On Wednesday this week eight members of the Running Stitchers, plus a couple of friends, had a trip to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to see the Grayson Perry tapestries 'The Vanity of Small Differences'.  We had pre-arranged for a guided tour with a talk about each tapestry which certainly made all the difference to our visit.  We all just need to watch the Channel 4 video now.

There was ample opportunity to look around some of the other treasures in the Museum and Art Gallery.  I particularly liked these tiles on display in the William de Morgan section of the Museum.

I apologise for the poor quality of the rabbit picture, believe it must be because I have cropped the original.

One or two of us also found time to pop over to the new Birmingham Library building which is amzing.
