Traces at Walford Mill

Traces is a selected exhibition, by members of Textile Forum South West, being shown at Walford Mill in Dorset.

Janet Haigh's work is based on a sampler from Bristol Museum. Janet is inspired by the chance element inherent in any medium dependant on fire for its outcome, here the enamel has been stenciled through drawn work before firing and then the strips are joined together with needlelace insertion stitched in metal or wire thread.
Sue Bradley based her Memory Dress on her great grandmothers christening gown. The dress itself is machine knitted in lambswool and dissolvable yarn and is embellished with lace panels knitted in fine wire.
