Events followed by tuition

5th July - 1st September 2019

A "maximalist" exhibition showing a wide range of patterns!

An exhibition of mixed media craftwork by Devon Guild Members' showing a riotous mixture of patterns, set against a vibrant feature wall of graffiti.

To be found everywhere we look - pattern ‘repeats in a predictable manner’, as in wallpaper, but can be subverted or changed according to the whims of the designer. Creating a pattern can be harder than you’d think, and is a brilliant challenge for a craftsperson's design skills - whether it's something they work with on a daily basis, or more rarely...

Liz is delighted to showcase new work: hand pleated felt designs which explore the interaction of repetitive segments.

Open daily 10am-5.30pm. Free entry.
All work is for sale, call for more details and prices: 01626 832223

Liz responds to the history and provenance of the beautiful medieval glass throughout the Palace with SHARD. Wool material has been re-purposed from previous studio production: de-constructed and re-worked using traditional and contemporary hand felting techniques to create cloth fragments which have been cut, pieced and stitched. The pallet is deliberately restrained characterised by the translucent quality of the textured “glass-like” surfaces. Shard makes homage to the beauty and glory of past craftsmanship.

The exhibition hosts musical events, debates, talks and workshops, a feast of creativity for all tastes.

Opening daily 10am - 6pm at the Bishops Palace.
10am - 4pm at Heritage Courtyard Gallery
