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.
