The Exhibition is now Open

After much huffing and puffing and some tweaks here and there. The exhibition is now open! We are astounded by the quality of the work we have received, some of it much much nicer than in the images sent to us by the artists. I think that there is a lesson there for all of us about how we present our work, although in fairness I truly believe that naturally treated/dyed textiles are much more difficult to satisfactorily photograph than other media even by professional photographers.

For this reason I am not posting any pictures until we have seen what the professional photographer has come up with. A few nice ones that we have taken have been posted on Facebook.

Update on the workshops. We should have posted this a while back. Sadly we have had to cancel Sarah Waters Black and White felt workshop. However there are a couple of her beautiful pieces on display at our sister exhibition at ArtVanGo. There are still a couple of places on Jennys indigo and flour paste resist workshop and spaces in Fabiennes ‘Pods of Tenderness’. More details on the Workshops page.

The sister From the Earth Tutors exhibition at ArtVanGo will open on Saturday the 4th June. On that day they are also having their annual Summer Gathering where a number of practising textile artists will be present demonstrating their particular techniques ( not necessarily natural!) with opportunities to chat to them about what they do and possibly even have a go. I have heard there is also cake involved. So well worth checking out.

Definitive pics of the exhibition will be along in due course


Happy New Year!

A belated Happy New Year from the earth!. Plans are coming along very nicely and it is lovely that quite a few people have signed up to our blog – welcome everyone! We plan to announce call for artists at the end of the month which will give people a better idea of what is involved.IMG_0088 (640x427)
