Today I posted......

.....a large parcel containing three of my portrait hangings through to the Woodend Creative Workspace in Scarborough where they will be part of the "Knit Happens" exhibition which in turn is part of the North Yorkshire Open Studios Event.  The exhibition runs from 1st to 25th June 2010  11am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and it's free to visit.  The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Gaston of Leeds University and the pieces on show were chosen to challenge the view of kniting as a domestic craft.  If you are in the area check it out.   

The Woodend Creative Workspace itself used to be the summer home of Edith Sitwell and has recently been refurbished and is a dedicated venue for creative and cultural businesses with a dedicated gallery space in the former Sitwell Conservatory and one of the original family staterooms from which you can see Scarborough's Valley Gardens and beyond that the sea.
I'm hoping to be able to visit myself because it looks like a wonderful place and I can never resist a trip to the seaside!
