Wool Yorkshire at the Knitting & Stitching Show 2013 - Harrogate

Whilst at the Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate I came across the Wool Yorkshire exhibition.  Here's a taster ...

Jess Browning - Woollen Fabric

Jess loves the vast sprawling industrial landscapes of Yorkshire and has captured them in a bold & vibrant way in this fabric.  (There's also a fantastic purple piece too but you'll have to go in person to see that - or catch  a glimpse of it in the pic below)

Sue Carter - Wool Seats
Sue's wool seats are made from recycled wool and cardboard tubing. She says "I wanted people to take a moment to stop, feel and interact with the different types of wool fabric & yarns, and to recognize the versatility of the fibre".

Lydia Brockless - Woollen Sculpture
Lydia Brockless is a fine art student who makes sculptures in a range of media.  Here she is exploring the fabulous colours and textures of wool through a "playful range of organic shapes which huddle together".

This exhibition is downstairs on the Learning Curve level but through the double doors - you could easily miss it so do seek it out.
