Solo exhibition at Rhayader Museumand Gallery (CARAD)
During 2017 I was fortunate to have the opportunity to have an Exhibition at CARAD Museum and Gallery here in Rhayader. Between 16th September and 18th November I exhibited a range of my work. The exhibition was entitled ‘Inspired by Rust’ and contained a range of my rust inspired work.
The gallery in CARAD is spacious and can be configured in a variety of ways to best display the work. I showed some design and preparation work alongside a range of wearable art including some hand felted jackets decorated with both rust and machine embroidery.
A variety of both large and small wall hangings in pieced patchwork and applique were displayed on the walls.
I was able to create a demonstration of my rusting methods to help visitors’ to understand the decoration of the fabrics.
It was very pleasing to see my work displayed in such a nice gallery space and to receive such positive feedback from the many visitors.
