TEXTILE DEMONSTRATION DAY
Friday May 18th 2018, 11am to 6pm.
Seven textile artists who are taking part in this year’s Harleston and Waveney Art Trail will be opening their studios a day early for visitors with a special textile interest. All these artists have developed their skills over many years, and between them cover a wide range of textile disciplines. Their studios are within a short distance of each other, between Pulham and Bungay:
Isobel Auker (wool and silk felting) Pulham St Mary, studio 4
Rose Martin (painting on silk) Needham, 2
Christina Greathead (hand and machine stitching) Starston, 5
Caryl Challis (contemporary batik) Harleston, 6
Ingrid Duffy (textile collage and stitch) Homersfield, 12
Lin Patterson (piecing, colour and construction) South Elmham, 11
Poppy Szaybo (stitch and surface decoration) Bungay, 17
Visitors will be offered a unique chance to see and experience a variety of processes and techniques with fibre, cloth, colour and stitch, and also to find out about textile workshops available throughout the year.

Waveney Revisited, a new exhibition organised by members of HWAT, has recently opened at the newly refurbished Corn Hall in Diss, featuring the work of twenty four artists in the annual art trail. The collective theme is encounters, moments and responses to the Waveney Valley. A smaller ‘taster’ exhibition will also be hosted at The Farmer’s Kitchen near Alburgh, with one work from each artist on display. Both exhibitions will showcase the exciting range of art created by the artists in HWAT – from vibrant abstracts and evocative landscapes, to textiles, printmaking and sculpture.
Chairman of HWAT, Malcolm Cudmore, said: “Both exhibitions will showcase recent works from members and give visitors the chance to see the quality and breadth of work that will form Harleston & Waveney Art Trail in 2018“.
The exhibition Waveney Revisited at The Corn Hall is free entry, open 10am-4pm Monday to Saturday, from 2nd May to 2nd June 2018. Visit Diss Cornhall website for more details.
HWAT’s recent book, Waveney Reflections, will also be on sale at both exhibitions.
