Exhibitions and Events

EXCITING NEWS!!   OPEN FROM 29th June.

The Complex Weavers’ biennial exhibition is being held as a virtual exhibition this year – much more accessible for Guild members than the planned venue of Knoxville, Tennessee! It opens on Monday 29 June at midday (BST) at http://www.complexityexhibition.org/ and showcases recent textile creations that bear within them some form of complexity, whether they have been woven on a table, treadle, dobby or Jacquard loom. All were made by hand and designed by humans, and all exhibit technical excellence! There are some wonderful illustrations on the site. Well worth a visit.

Butterflies, detail. Wall hanging by Rosalie Neilson. Warp-faced rep woven on 16 shafts. Cotton.

Bloomsbury Collective will have a pop-up store t o sell their Bloomsbury-inspired wares. Their little shop will be situated in Abinger Place in Lewes. Open first three weekends in September. Quote from Meg Griffiths –

‘this year the newly-formed ‘Blooming Bloomsbury Collective’ will be exhibiting in a van outside the house. We are a group of local women who met as guides at Charleston Farmhouse, sadly due to Covid currently closed. Each of us is a ‘maker’ with a shared interest in the art, craft and ethos of Bloomsbury.   The friendship and collaboration of that group has inspired us to share ideas, offer mutual support, risk experimentation. The work for this exhibition includes plant-dyed yarns, textiles, lampworked beads, ceramics, drawing, painting and prints’.
