Visit to Fragments Exhibition

Image

A good time was had by all who visited the preview of this impressive exhibition at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery 

Here are some photos to tempt you to visit too!

I have been a fan of Leah’s work for some time and always enjoy seeing it on display, especially this one!  Oh how I wish I had the wall space….

This is ‘Ruins 9: Cottonopolis’ and is inspired by the unused derelict mills of Manchester.

This series named ‘Gas Works’ is inspired by the abandoned gas works on Liverpool Street in Salford.

Helen’s work is inspired in some way by graffiti and these stitched photographic prints are absolutely fab I think.

I love the use of text in art work and enjoy incorporating it into my own work in different ways so it was no surprise that I like Helen’s work.

This is a close up of one of the large ‘City Blocks’ series which uses words for home in a variety of languages, see if you can find it when you visit.

And here are the very talented ladies with the Mayor of Stockport who also paid a visit.

Visit if you can, it’s on ’til end of June.

A weekend full of creativity

Image

I am ashamed to say that in all the years I have lived in Manchester, I have never been inside Manchester Cathedral.

That was remedied last Saturday with a visit to Manchester Print Fair which was filled with lots of talented stall holders which you can see here

You will not be surprised that I couldn’t resist photos of some of the cathedral’s textiles.





and of course those windows!

On Sunday I spent the afternoon at one of my favourite places, The Palm House in Sefton Park.

Pop Up in the Palm House hosted lots of talented makers and of course I was tempted!

Check out the future dates of these events, they are well worth attending.

Thank you for stopping by, it is much appreciated…
