loose threads by kay haskins

if you are in or around manchester any time between 4th april and 1st may, pop along to the turnpike gallery (civic square, leigh, greater manchester) to see 'loose threads' by kay. the gallery is open mon to fri 10am to 6pm and saturday 9.30am to 3.30pm and admission is free.

the exhibition is based around an installation kay produced while at university. kay explains, “the piece consists of two drawers that have been lined and filled with handcrafted treasures to represent two very different generations, mine and my grandparents. the installation depicts the debate surrounding alzheimer’s disease and the loss of memory.”

alongside this will be a selection of kay’s handcrafted treasures, which are all available for purchase. items available include brooches, door hangers, gift tags and purses.

for more information, here's the link to the textile directory article.
