An exhibition of textile art is to feature work inspired by Norwich's Magdalen Street.

The group Artful Stitchers is presenting the exhibition Roots and Routes at Anteros Arts Foundation in Fye Bridge Street, Norwich, from May 16 to 26.

The show aims to explore the subjects of 'roots' and 'routes,' interpreting shared histories, natural themes and journeys in a variety of textile forms ranging from hand felting to machine embroidery.

The centrepiece will be a display of work by each artist exploring the rich

narratives of Magdalen Street.
