Gallery from one direction
 First impressions when you enter the gallery is the immensity of the space, you can hardly see from one end to the other. Its something like 10,000 sq ft.

Only when you have recovered your breath can you concentrate on the exhibits. These are many and very varied. I haven't taken many photos, I could have taken hundreds.

Most of the exhibitors were either British or Japanese and the differences in their work was considerable, you could see the differences in the textile practices between the two countries very clearly.
The relationship between the artists and the space and history of the mill was also fascinating. Thats all I am going to say, look at for further images and information.


  1. This is one exhibit I really REALLY wish I could see ... you are SO lucky, Debbie. I watched the long video about all the artists & was utterly fascinated by the extraordinary variety of approaches used for this space. Simply FABULOUS.

  2. Yes it was a fabulous exhibition and the stories behind the work fascinating. There is an excellent book to accompany the exhibition. You may be able to get it in the States.
