From the freshness of first experiments, through developing technique and an emerging ‘voice’, each weaver’s journey is shown by a retrospective collection of tapestries.

14 artists, 14 outlooks, passion and palette. Paths crossing, converging, responding. Images of love and admiration, of landscapes dark and dense, scoured, vast, worked and wild.

Judith Aylett, Lorraine Darwin, Alan Gilchrist, Eileen Hughes, Libby Hughes, Susan Hunt, Daphne Kirk, Robin Low, Louise Martin, Margarett Maxwell, Gillian Morris, Gill Owen, Mhairi Stewart, Jan Watson

'Borders' thematic exhibition


iota is happy to host this exhibition by the Scottish members of the British Tapestry Group, from1-9 December. 28 exhibitors explore the theme, in a variety of woven formats.  A sense of place - from the inner self, the impact of global warming, physical borders, barriers and being on the edge, the politics of exclusion, war and refugees, is juxtaposed alongside images of the beauty around us in gardens and landscape.  Exhibits include 3-dimensional weaving on “found” objects; the diversity of these pieces showcase how creative weavers can be. The work can be purchased.
