SECOND LOOK: handmade textiles

October 6, 2021 - October 24, 2021

SECOND LOOK: handmade textiles
Open Wednesday to Sunday 11 – 5pm

SECOND LOOK: handmade textiles exhibition reflects on how handmade textiles are collected, valued, cherished, loved, treasured and used by makers. Some exhibitors have saved, stored, cared for and archived pieces made in the past and are presenting them for a second time. Others have reworked existing textiles into new works by recolouring, stitching, piecing, collaging, re-weaving and other techniques re-contextualising them into new works, creating pieces full of memory with traces of use, history and a past life.

All exhibitors value their materials, the hand made and in this exhibition are giving textiles a new life, a second look. The exhibition includes works created by basketry, collage, embroidery, knitting, printing, weaving, natural dye and Shibori techniques.

SECOND LOOK: handmade textiles includes works by Jane Bodnaruk, Alana Clifton, Vita Cochran, Ro Cook, Michele Elliot, Nicole Ellis, Vivien Haley, Cecilia Heffer, Chris Hutch, Judith Kentish, Brenda Livermore, Christina Newberry, John Parkes, Emma Peters, Barbara Rogers, Julie Ryder, Liz Williamson and Melinda Young.

The exhibition can easily be viewed through the two large gallery windows each day and evening.
