Re-View Textiles at Farfield Mill – A Small World
13 September – 29 October
Farfield Mill is an arts, craft and heritage centre housed in a restored Victorian Woollen Mill in the Yorkshire Dales – heritage displays, working looms, exhibitions, craft demonstrations, art and craft for sale by resident and visiting artists, workshops and events – plus delicious food in Weavers Cafe.
We have made a collection of curious, miniature works. Reminiscent of displayed collections of oddities around the globe, brought back by travelling collectors in the era before the electronic age gave us all a wider taste of the world.
Curiosities include – micro sea-life, beach combing assemblages, a child’s dream, a mermaid, bugs, felt flowers, pairs of objects from a nature table, a story of exploitation of natural resources, minutiae of vegetable surfaces, cityscapes, birds.
Artists : Sue Boardman, Janet Wilkinson, Rosey Paul, Yvonne Deegan, Jo Frankel, Viv Netherwood, Judith Railton, Jen Fenner, Catherine Carmyllie, Marion Roberts, Julie James-Turner
