Window on Weaving
PROVISIONALLY re-scheduled for May 2021 (dates will be confirmed closer to the time).
The exhibition is organised by BTG SE, and the BTG London Group have been invited to participate. The work exhibited is an expression, both of the diversity of the weavers who created the pieces on display, as well as demonstrating the vast potential of the techniques involved. One of the key factors in bringing the group together has been the nurturing of confidence alongside developing the skills of weaving, and the work on display illustrates confidence and skills in abundance. The exhibition title was chosen to leave maximum scope for interpretation by individual weavers. Only a maximum size was specified.
