An exhibition by members of Kings Lynn Embroiderers’ Guild, A Retrospective of Work, is being held this weekend at the new Eau Brink Studio in Tilney All Saints.

It is open from 10am-4pm on Saturday and from 10am-3.30pm on Sunday, with free admission and off-road parking.

Eau Brink Studio is a modern crafting space established this year by textiles artist Anita O’Neill, who says: “This is the first exhibition hosted by me at the studio which is a perfect setting as the light is good and the room is very spacious.

“This exhibition is a culmination of the work finished this year using techniques old and new.

“Sharing ideas and learning new skills is something that the guild is very passionate about and wanting to show how the work incorporates traditional skills with the new, in some cases mixing both and creating mixed media work.”

There will be a sales table and refreshments available.

This is a Festival fringe event which was, originally, going to be held at the Red Cross Hall in Lynn.

An exhibition of patchwork and stitched items made during the past two years by the Samphire Quilters members will be on display on Friday and over the weekend at St Nicholas’ Chapel, Lynn. Opening times are 10am-4pm each day and admission is £2, with children under 16 free.

The Spectrum Art and Craft Club is holding its annual art exhibition and craft fair at the London Road Methodist Church in Lynn. This opens on Tuesday and will continue to Saturday, July 23, 10am-4pm daily. Entry is free, but there will be craft stalls and items for sale, with all proceeds going to the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.

A group of seven friends have contributed to “7 In Their Element” exhibition at the Greyfriars Art Space in St James Street, Lynn. This continues to Saturday, July 30 (10am-4pm daily, not open on Sundays), with free admission.

Dersingham Pottery & Gallery 44th Summer Exhibition of work by June and Ben Mullarkey and Siobhan Williams continues in the village until September 3.

Oils and watercolours by Sonia Williams are on display at her open garden and studio in Church Road, Watlington, until Saturday, July 30.

West Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers are holding wool workshops in a marquee on Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place from 10-11am on Saturday. This event is for all ages to go along and play with wool including jewellery making and pompoms.

You are also asked to take along donations of lace and buttons which will be put to good use for the benefit of the many charities supported by the group at home and abroad with lovingly hand knitted and sewn items.

The group meets at the Providence Street Community Centre in Lynn and the next meeting is on Friday, July 29, from 10am-noon.

All knitters and stitchers are invited to join the group at their Wool Shack for a chance to chat with fellow knitters over a cuppa and start knitting for Hallowe’en.

There is the opportunity to purchase wool, patterns, needles and buttons; unwanted bras are also needed for a Breast Cancer charity event in Hunstanton. The group’s animal charities urgently need towels, while knitted squares are also useful which are made into blankets for Age UK and many pet charities. Bottle tops and biscuit wrappers are also collected. For further details visit
