Ruthin Craft Centre

Today I went to see this interesting exhibition Follow A Thread, Innovative Craft - Dedicated to positioning craft of international quality at the heart of 21st century culture at Canolfan Grefft Rhuthun - Ruthin Crafft Centre

I Googled the artists when I came home and here I share what I found with you. I must admit that personally I found Linda Green's work very appealing, with Anna Ray and Sara Brennan following closely.

As usual I took lots of photos while I was there, but I didn't take any photos of the artists work. A few autumn leaves and circles.

Wonderful photos Mags - I like the third one especially - and your circles. I love the shape of cog wheels. Thanks for the links - I'm off for more delights.

Beautiful photos Mags and I agree with you about Sara Brennan's work. I'm delighted this exhibition is coming to Harley Gallery near me so I will be able to see it. Thank you for sharing and for the links. Very different work some of it.

Hi Mags

Beautiful photos.

If you're curious, there's a limited edition DVD available which contains two unique works relating to the show 'Follow A Thread'.

The first is a copy of the film 'Lightwork (Many Hands)' which is featured in the show, an unusual look at the work of weaving.

The second is a documentary of the extraordinary event 'A Stitch in Time' that took place at Dovecot Studio Edinburgh (2009) involving weavers, musicians, film makers & visual artists.

You can buy this at the Ruthin Craft Centre shop, or by contacting

Best wishes, Matt Hulse
