From the Earth exhibition

Mary's piece 'From Shawl to Shroud' has been selected for the very first From The Earth exhibition.
This group, set up by Alice Fox and Caroline Bell, are promoting the use of only natural and green processes in textile art. Everything used must be either natural or recycled

Originally made for the Out Of The Fold gallery at the Knitting and Stitching shows in 2014 the wallhanging is made from recycled calico coffin cover (donated by Carol) and is rust dyed using recycled sofa springs (donated by Jane). Mostly hand stitched.

The exhibition will take place during the month of June in the Mardelybury Gallery, Datchwood, Herts (near ArtVanGo)
