Today, just a couple of days before the exhibition ended, we made it. It's a small space, so a small exhibition, but well worth the visit, both for a weaver-wannabe like me, and for someone with a general interest in art, like Wensleydale. The work, delicate both in structure and colour, is inspired by the environment - skies, crumbling paint, etc. - and by traditional Greek embroidery.
The exhibition includes both photos of the objects which inspired the work, and details of design development, which I found especially fascinating. Unfortunately there were few labels and the promised information sheets were not in evidence, so although the design ideas were clear, this non-expert would have liked a lot more information about technique. I don't aspire to a 'digital jacquard loom' but some of the small, sampler-like pieces looked to me as if they had been made on something much simpler - it would have been nice to know. It would also have been nice to know which was warp and which weft in some pieces - perhaps obvious to experts, but not to me! But a minor quibble, and I have bought the exhibition booklet, so maybe that will answer some of my questions.
No cafe at the gallery, but we found a Starbuck's, which we never go in normally, so that was quite exciting <g>. I wonder if the guy who disappeared into the loo 10 minutes before we left, and never re-emerged, has come out to reclaim his laptop yet?
