Preview Night Fashioned in Silk
The preview night of Fashioned in Silk at Macclesfiled Silk Museum was a great hit despite the bad weather. The subdued lighted added to the ethereal effect of the silk organza toiles.
Each toile is decorated by members in a style/design of their own choosing although there is a link to the silk heritage of Macclesfield in all.
The central toile in the image is the dramatic design in deep red by Armelle Hatch.
There is to be an interview with Margaret Steeden on Canalside Radio 102.8 FM on Thursday 6th March at approx 8.45 am. Regarding the exhibition.
