Lost for Words

Lost for Words

Work by John and Astrid Furnival

Saturday 26 May - Sunday 24 June | Admission Free

John Furnival was a student at the Royal College in the 1950s alongside David Hockney. Best known as a 'visual poet' with work in the Tate, he has since lived with his textile artist wife Astrid in  Nailsworth and Woodchester. This exhibition shows drawings, prints and collages from over 50 years, with a focus on his collaborations with Astrid, that resulted in her producing many text-based knitted garments using natural dyes.

Curated by Bernard Moxham and accompanied by a publication with essay by Stephen Bann, the programme includes tours of the exhibition and workshops.

Supported by Arts Council England and the Langtree Trust
