What's happening?



Our latest exhibition


has finished its 2015 tour.


A new venue for 2016 will be announced shortly.

Between the Lines will next be on display at a new venue (to be announced shortly) in 2016. Details to follow.


The exhibition was previously launched at the Knitting and Stitching Shows in London and Harrogate in October and November 2014, to great acclaim. It then moved to Braintree District Museum, Braintree in Essex, and the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, Gloucestershire during 2015. It's last venue for 2015 was the Pond Gallery, Snape Maltings in Suffolk from 2 to 8 July 2015.






Work in Progress

As our latest exhibition, BETWEEN THE LINES, continues to travel, members of EAST have been working on their next exhibition, the title of which we hope to announce shortly.


Many of our members are at their sampler and sketchbook stage so we have little to show at present but information and exhibition venues will be announced in due course.



Keep up to date on our blog and on Facebook.

For up to date information about events and exhibition visit our blog or find us on Facebook. We would also love you to "like our page" and this will also keep you updated.


Our Between the Lines blog currently has information on all the work by the different artists as well as information on other WW1 artistic and cultural commemorative events.
