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! Well worth a visit to the site.
