A new exhibition of textile artwork is due to open at Goole Museum. ‘Extreme weather patterns; from calm to storm’ opens on 21 November and runs until 27 January.
But anyone wanting a sneak preview can go along to the museum from 1 to 3pm on Saturday 18 November to meet textile artist Christine Heath. She will be in the museum for visitors to ask questions about her work and will give a short talk and demonstration of how her art is created.
In addition, on Saturday 9 December from 12.30 to 2.30pm Christine will be holding a workshop at the museum, offering a taster session on textile art and how to make it. The workshop is free but places are limited so booking is required. Please ring Goole Museum to book on 01405 768963 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christine explains: “We cannot escape the weather and the reality of global warming with all the challenges that it brings. This series of work was inspired by extreme weather patterns, beginning with the sea and storms through to the effects of drought on the land.”
Curator Debbie Hardy added: “Come along and meet Christine and discover how her work was created. The art is inspirational and I hope it encourages our visitors to have a go at making their own art at Christine’s workshop in December.”
