Soft Engineering: Textiles Taking Shape
 

Soft Engineering brings together, for the first time, the work of these three talented makers. Having pursued separate careers in knitting and weaving, they find many common threads that have now inspired them to work together on this joint exhibition.

Throughout the exhibition there is a central theme of textiles taking shape through the interplay of raw material and structure with pleating, folding, twisting, double-sided fabrics.

Finished pieces of work will be complemented by explanatory materials including loomstate pieces, photographs and paper models, showing the processes of making and finishing.

The exhibition is accompanied by talks and artist-led workshops.

Ghostly Tales of Gloucestershire
 

Whether it’s white ladies or old ladies, monks or miners, blacksmiths or beggars, horses or hounds, priests or poltergeists, unwilling brides or all too willing femmes fatales, Gloucestershire’s hidden places are seething with spooks. Fire Springs storytellers Anthony Nanson and Kirsty Hartsiotis tell a spooky selection of the county’s creepiest ghost stories. You won’t look at Gloucestershire’s towns and landscapes the same way again, especially after dark.
