Wolfson College is delighted to host the exhibition "The Palestinian History Tapestry" that was opened by Judith English, former Principal of St Hilda's College, last Friday.

The show illustrates the history of the Land of Palestine, from the Neolithic era to the present. Palestinian women, many of them who live in refugee camps across the Middle East, have produced the artwork on display. The works are an honest and touching depiction of the history of the land and its people and their everyday life.

In retirement Judith English became a Founder Member of the PHT project, serving on the UK committee and taking responsibility for organising exhibitions of the work. This project interested her because it involved women helping women who were living in difficult circumstances and because of a personal interest in textile art.

The exhibition continues until 15 February. Open daily from 10:00 to 19:00 subject to College commitments. Visitors are advised to ring the Lodge on 01865 274100 beforehand. Learn more
