Textile Exhibition

2 May 2019

The textile exhibition in gallery 3 is now open, displaying work from 13 local textile workers, ranging from patchwork to collage, cross-stitch to felting and lace-making to costume.

We’re fortunate enough to be having Jan Slater, a member of the London Guild of Weavers, and Jeanne Daniel, textile designer, spinner and weaver, coming along most weekends to give demonstrations of spinning and weaving. If the weather’s fine they’ll be on the terrace, and if not in the galleries. We’re also hoping to have some ad-hoc lacemaking demonstrations from the Barton Lace group.

This is a small scale exhibition that we hope will give us an idea of how much interest there is in textiles locally, and with a view to allowing all artists (including textile workers) to submit to our Open exhibition next year. So please tell all your friends!
