Journey with Nature
Tue 14th May 2024 to Sun 14th July 2024
Embracing Wool formed in early 2022 as a collaboration of professional and award winning textile artists based in and around Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The group's artists primarily work with and promote the use of wool as a medium for their work, showcasing the versatility of this sustainable and accessible natural resource and the extrardinary qualities it possesses. The uses of wool vary from traditional crafts such as knitting, spinning, and weaving to the ancient art of feltmaking, the oldest form of non-woven fabric in the world.
Wool is enjoying a resurgence in the creative world thanks to its extraordinary qualities. Transforming raw wool to fine art textiles and couture is embraced by members pushing the boundaries of this diverse and exciting medium.
Embracing Wool provide curated exhibitions, demonstrations, and workshops, showcasing heritage craft skills by accomplished modern makers while allowing new members to learn new skills.
Here in the beautiful setting of Burton Constable the group presents for your pleasure a curated display of their art while maintaining the integrity of each independent artist.
