Handed Down, Handing On.... April 2013
Our next exhibition will be in April 2013 at Jobling Gower in Macclesfield which is a lovely exhibition space. For this exhibition we will be exploring things which have been handed down to us and also those that we want to hand on to our children.
Textile artist, Maria Walker is planning on basing her work on her postcard collection, which was partly handed down to her but is also something she has added to over time. She particularly likes her collection of old comic postcards as they remind her of family holidays in Blackpool where her Grandma ran a boarding house. She was brought up in a working class family in Sheffield and is proud of her working class roots so she is hoping to hand on this pride to her children along with her wicked sense of humour.
