News: WEATHER whether? 18-27 April, Angmering Sussex
The South East British Tapestry Group is returning to the Mill House Gallery, Angmering for an exhibition of new contemporary woven tapestries. This year the theme of the exhibits is WEATHER whether? Each artist has interpreted this timely play on words in the same media - woven tapestry - but taking their own unique perspective on the theme. The result is a beautifully diverse and wide range of often, playful interpretations.

About the Mill House Gallery: Owned by Margaret and her husband Ranjit the mill was built in the 1820's and was a working mill until the early 1870's when it lost its cap and sweeps in a storm. The mill was in bad state when Margaret and Ranjit moved into The Mill House in 2002, and they began a renovation by waterproofing the outside, replacing the cap modelled on the only photograph available of the original working mill, and finally restoring the inside. The exhibition space simply designed itself after the renovation! With stairs that hug the walls the mill has five floors, each floor getting progressively smaller as you ascend the tower. The top floor is very small but is a beautiful space with a high domed ceiling. Margaret says "I was delighted when the South east British tapestry group came to see the mill and were excited by the quirkiness of the space". It will be fun to welcome people to enjoy the weavings and the space".
