Lost in Lace Exhibition

After the Dream by Chihara Shiota

The exhibition 'Lost in Lace' in Birmingham is absolutely fabulous! Not every exhibition can deliver the 'wow' factor as was the case when I went to see the 62 Group's latest exhibition 'Interventions' at Platt Hall.
Finding new concepts, materials and methods of working is increasingly challenging in the textile world but Lesley Millar has succeeded in seeking out world wide artists who can deliver just this yet still have their work rooted in 'lace'.  Exhibition ends 19th February 2012.

Happy New Year!

A very Happy New Year to all those who read our blog.  We write the blog so that we can share what we do as a group and keep you up to date with our exhibitions and those we have visited.  This reminds me, the 'Lost in Lace' exhibition at Gas Hall, Birmingham ends in February and after its' fabulous reviews I must get over to see it.

We now have a lovely new website http://www.cheshiretextiles.org.uk/ showing our latest work, including that of our two new members, Sue and Shirley. We do welcome feedback on both the blog and website.
If you are having difficulties getting onto the blog, I would like to suggest that you either put it into your favourites or enter the full address into your browser http://www.cheshiretextiles.blogspot.com/ ; a Google search will not find it!

Snow is not the weather we are experiencing at the moment but I liked the image!!
