Artist/Owners Fiona Norton and Glennis Andrews (collar) are proud to present their recent collaboration with Laura Tuffley, now Artist in Residence at their Gallery, who has for some months been renovating the Gallery's 100 year old Loom.
Laura has now created a collection of contemporary woven products on this Loom, and all items are for Sale. Accompanying the Exhibition of her new work, is a small display of the how the Loom was put to work in the early 1900's in Switzerland and entered the popular Straw `industry of its time. Since then it has travelled to the Isle of Man, and arrived in Manchester 20 years ago. It has had its own beauty as a museum piece, but now it is once again a working loom. A re-birth !
