Exhibtion Ends

The Tapestry Exhibition finally finished on 13th July and on Monday 14th we all went along to collect our work. This was done with mixed feelings – some relief that it was all over tinged with some sadness for the same reason! No tapestries were sold but several of us sold some of our cards, me included, so that was a nice little reward for our efforts. The Gallery at Nuneaton really did us proud, they were very friendly and helpful and made the whole experience most enjoyable for us. It is a wonderful vibrant place and if you are ever in the area I hope you will visit – there will always be something worth seeing.

I forgot to take my camera along but I took one or two photos on my mobile phone which have not turned out very well. Maralyn Hepworth’s Flax mill weaving was still on the wall so I took the opportunity to photograph it to share here. It came out a little hazy, partly due to the fact that the weaving was encased in a perspex frame. I also took one of the completed ‘Have-a-Go’ weave, again a little unfocused but here they both are:

You can find out more about the Flaxmill Tapestry from Maralyn’s website and ‘Weavers Yarns’ blog; links to both are on the sidebar Blogroll.

Post exhibition meal

After collecting our work we went out for a celebratory lunch together where we debriefed about our experience, talked about future weaving plans and speculated about where and when our next exhibition would be as well as generally chatting among ourselves about anything and nothing in particular. Above is a photo of us all, photo kindly taken by my husband on my mobile phone and unfortunately with the sun shining through the window behind us. Maralyn was not able to join us but circling round from the left you can see yours truly, Victoria Green, Jane’s husband John, Jane Freear-Wyld, Lindsey Marshall and Pauline Fisk.
