Spinning a yarn and Weaving a story

This is the title of my exhibition at Whitchurch Silk Mill.  Using walking as a method of storytelling, it is about journeys.  I have spun and woven maps and newspapers to create the work on show.  A few pieces were shown at the Knitting and Stitching shows last autumn but there is new work as well.

There are two large cabinets, upstairs contains a formal display, downstairs is a more informal collection, designed to give some background to the upstairs exhibition.

The Mill itself is well worth a visit, with a wealth of information and displays about weaving processes and machinery in its handsome buildings on the banks of the river Test.  At the moment there is a glorious carpet of purple crocus flowers on the lawn beside the fast flowing water below the tea room windows.

The Mill is open daily from 10.30am – 5pm but note it is closed on Mondays.  The exhibition is on until 31 May.
