Exhibition - Made in Britain: Concealed

9th September to 23rd October 2016

From Friday 9th September to Sunday 23rd October 2016 Forge Mill Needle Museum was host to a new exhibition entitled ‘Made in Britain: Concealed’.

The exhibition involved a creative range of exhibits from some of Britain’s most well-known and respected textile artists: Louise Baldwin, Pauline Barns, Hilary Beattie, Ineke Berlyn, Cas Holmes, Rosie James, Edwina MacKinnon, Sandra Meech, Stephanie Redfern, Christine Restall and Jenny Rolfe.

They encompass a breath-taking range of textile art interpretation methods and styles, with every participant demonstrating what the term ‘concealed’ means to them This can range from physical concealment to hidden histories, hidden kingdoms, cities, civilisations, veiled faces, expressions and views.

The images shown do not show the vibrancy and colour of the originals and a visit was well worthwhile.
