Fundraising Auction of original artworks
for The Christie’s Complementary Therapy Service

Designed and created by Embroidery Students from Manchester Metropolitan University, each one of these gorgeous blankets is a creative masterpiece. Taking the theme of Nature as inspiration and applying diverse embroidery techniques to a variety of fabrics, a unique artwork was produced by each designer. The blankets provide warmth and comfort, but are also beautiful to look at and touch. They are an inspirational addition to a therapy room and an enhancement to creative imagery sessions. They are perfect for the home and would also create an ideal wall-hanging.
