#var:page_name# cover

Textile Art is moving out of the
shadow of so called fine arts and
taking pride of place as in centuries
past when tapestries were considered
the acme of artistry.
This exhibition features traditional
fibre work such as needlepoint and
hand embroidery, executed in
traditional yarns such as wools and
silks but it also features unusual
elements such as rusted metal, teabags
and rubber.
Weaving, felting, knitting, crochet and
quilting are some of the techniques
represented in both traditional and
unusual guises.
