An exhibition of contemporary weaving assembled by the McDougall Art Gallery from the work of Canterbury weavers.
Opening on October 14 is an exhibition of contemporary weaving assembled by the McDougall Art Gallery from the work of Canterbury weavers. Exhibited will be a selection of woven pieces employing natural fibres in a variety of loom work, spinning and lace making techniques. Two floor looms will also be installed in the Gallery adding to the understanding of the technique and making interesting exhibits in themselves. Also demonstrations of loom work, spinning and lace making will be given in the Gallery and these, with an audio visual supporting programme, will add to a full and fascinating exhibition.
For those who enjoy participating, a Weave-in will be held during Labour weekend October 20-22nd in the Gallery centre court, where Gallery visitors can add their individual touch to collective works.
