7th May - 29th August 2011
The ‘Made in Yorkshire’ exhibition is the result of an invitation by the Quilt Museum to individual textile artists working in the area including; Philippa Naylor, Serena Partridge, Gillian Travis, Fiona Wilson, Christine Shaw, Alison Bramley, Dionne Swift, Sallie Temple, Christine Heath, Fiona Hirst, Carol Coleman, Caroline Dunn, Sandra Middletonand Karen Griffiths . The work on show will demonstrate a variety of skills including weaving, embroidery and quilting ranging in form from woven scarves to applied landscapes. One such landscape is the Pennine village of Ripponden where some of the former mills have been converted to luxury flats. Created by artist Gillian Travis, ‘Pennine Contrasts’ captures the spirit of the village both old and new.
