See info about the Florence Artists below:

First Jill Davis of the Florence Paintmakers who make the ‘Egremont Red’ pigment will explain how their  work is inspired by the haematite powder of Florence Mine

Florence Paintmakers – launched their hand-made artists’ materials, based on the local rich red iron oxide, which can vary from a vivid blood red to a deep purple, depending on the particle size. The ore used for paint production has been ground to a fine powder which releases the rich russet colour which typifies Egremont Red.

Florence Mine was renowned for the quality of its ore and was the last deep haematite mine in Western Europe when it closed down in 2008. Florence Mine has now re-emerged as an Arts Centre which is where the event will take place incorporating  one of the Florence Paintmakers.  Other artists include: Tim Wood, Julia Wilmot and Dawn Mills.  Come and see a visual arts performance event with a difference.

It is great to see all the wonderful textile work shown at the Geelong Forum in Australia, all courtesy of Angie Wyman who took the exhibits from our Textile Network Group over there and displayed them alongside our Australian colleagues.

Angie hard at work doing the prep for the exhibition – Well Done Angie on behalf of the Northern  Textile Network in the UK, she did us proud. Here alongside are some examples of her work also showing in the NETS exhibition in Australia.

Pieces by Valerie Kirk

The above pieces by me are digital print outs of textile designs if you would like to see a couple of them printed onto silk go along to the C-Art Christmas Exhibition at the Tullie House Gallery in Carlisle Cumbria from 16th December onwards, where you can also buy interesting local craft pieces in the shop by Amanda Mercer and Emma Wiggington.  There will be a dynamic night in the final week, Thursday 7th February  when I will be hosting the Contemporary Vision 20 x 20 event in the Tullie House Lecture theatre, where Artists will be showing 20 examples of their work.  It is a rapid paced event with only 20 seconds per slide and a n interactive audience Q & A session afterwards.  Hope to see you there.
