Something for the weekend?
Apologies, the weekend will be over by the time we post all the things to do locally. Thanks to the Three Shires Festival there is so much to see and do we are spinning . The loop went to the opening of Visualize at Fence House on Buxton Rd. The work was really good and the three contemporary artists' work contrast strikingly and look beautiful in this delightful old building. Some good 'Ten Eight' photography too. Highly recomended.
St |James Church in Gawsworth has an exhibition of ecclesistical textiles, guided tours and cream teas.I think we'll pop a long on Sunday afternoon.St James Church in Sutton also has beautiful textiles, just without the cream tea bit. Get along to 'Upstairs at Sevens' on Chestergate to see work by Anne Ward and Stephanie Ramage or pop into The Weave in Bollington for their exhibition of Oriental rugs and carpets.We cant wait to see Clare de Ruiter's 'Journeys' installation in Macclesfield Town Hall ( see picture). A glorious felt work inspired by our local scenery. .Oh mustn't forget you can make and fly your own kite at Lyme Park today. You could take a picnic or grab some very reliable tea and cake in the cafe there. Mmm might just watch others with kites and concentrate on the cake. If you are quick you can join Dorothy Bentley Smith in the Market Square at 10.30 for the start of a guided Historic textile Walk of Macc. Next Saturday too.
