My Favourite Chair: Dinah

14 – 28 April 2018

To run alongside our exhibition ‘Chair/Cadair’ in the main gallery we are exhibiting our visitor’s favourite chairs and the stories and memories they hold in the gallery foyer.

“My mum Valerie Wood aged 90 designed and stitched this chair during the 1980’s, celebrating all the things she loves. The back is dominated by the figure of my dad with whom she shared her life -they played renaissance music and he wore this costume when he led the 600year celebrations in Gloucester. Her children feature and our dog Lena and Lorna the pony who we learned to ride on. The houses we lived in, that she created with Dad, the neighbouring churches and all of it surrounded by the gardens she planted and loved, trees and flowers are everywhere.”
