AN exhibition of ornamental creations has opened at the Royston & District Museum.
It shows the work of self-taught artist Cheryl Moore, from her skills at cake decoration to the intricate work of designs on wedding dresses.
During a preview of the exhibition on Saturday, she explained that work on a wedding dress usually took about a month.
A number of her wedding dress decoration designs are on display along with her work on accessories.
The exhibition shows, too, her work on evening wear.
The wedding dresses that carry her designs are purchased beforehand - and then she applies her artistic touch.
