CAS HOLMES EXHIBITING AT NEW QUILTING (UK EXHIBITION):
03-MAR-2017 TO 23-APR-2017
NEW QUILTING AT RHEGED CENTRE, PENRITH (UK EXHIBITION):About the Event: This new exhibition will challenge the perceptions of quilt making, revealing a strong and vibrant contemporary craft form that is just as likely to be found hanging on a gallery wall or urban loft apartment as it is covering a bed in a rural farmhouse. Quilts by national and Cumbrian makers have been selected for the quality of the craftsmanship and design, the use of colour and an innovative approach. The unique story behind each piece will also be told in the exhibition, either through accompanying sketches and material revealing how each quilt came to be, or through the storytelling ability of the quilt itself. The Exhibition includes some quilts from the Hellbeck Collection, bykind permission of Charles Blackett-Ord and a special collaboration piece by Maddi Nicholson and some members of the Levens Quilters. There are also many workshops on embroidery, knitting, crochet, sashiko and needlefelt. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
