Textiles and more
Before we tempt you with more textile treats from The Three Shires Festival a quick reminder that you can catch Jamie Walker and his guitar tomorrow night (Thursday) at the Hollins on Black Road.
Meanwhile Friday sees the unveiling of the winner of the Jobling Gowler prize.You can view this at the exhibition of the finalists and winning entries at Jobling Gowler's solicitors office/ light and spacious exhibition space on Park Lane.
Saturday has the Colour and texture in needlework day school at the Heritage Centre with prestigious speakers Kaffe Fassett, Diana Springall ( hope you've seen her collection at the Silk Museum?) and more. Booking essential.
The loop is an architecturally nosy creature, so we'll be heading along to Visualize for a double treat: an exhibition of work by three contemporary artists, creating fine art contemporary textiles and a chance to have a look at the newly restored Fence House on Buxton Rd.
If there weren't so many things happening locally we might nip into Manchester on Saturday to scour the first Manchester CONTENTS MAY VARY Art Car Boot Fair: an exhibition about the high-end art market delivered within the format of low-end trade.....but there's no time!
