'A Toast to our Retrospective' is an exhibition that aims to showcase a diverse collection of past and present art work created by the Top Floor Studio Group.

This exhibition will highlight pieces of textile art from our repertoire, with a particular focus on works that have emerged from the groups engagement and participation with various community groups.

Through this exhibition the aim is to celebrate the power of textile art as a medium for story-telling, community engagement and artistic expression. The central theme revolves around the exploration of personal narratives, cultural connections and shared experiences. The pieces exhibited reflect the studio group's deep-rooted commitment to engaging with diverse communities and to creating art that resonates with people from all walks of life. The exhibition will feature a carefully curated selection of textile artworks, showcasing the artistic journey of the Top Floor Art Studio Group.

Visitors can expect to see a range of techniques, such as embroidery, quilting, weaving, knitting and crochet and other techniques used to convey intricate narratives and to evoke emotions. The exhibition will include pieces made by the Studio group in partnership with various community organisations. These projects have encouraged the engagement of individuals from different backgrounds fostering a sense of inclusivity and shared creativity. These pieces demonstrate the transformative power of art in building connections and promoting social change alongside stories that speak of the human experience.
