Textiiles from Abroad - from the collection of Joan McLauchlan

This exhibition will also be at the Riverlore Gallery, 1494 State Highway 6, from 25 April to 2 May.

In recent years I have been fortunate to travel overseas, to go to out of the way and hard to get to places, and to see many crafts. Many fibre people have enjoyed seeing the textiles I have brought back. I have been persuaded to share them with you too.
The textiles I am showing are mostly from Asia, some old some new. While most articles are traditional some have a modern touch.

What always amazes me is the intricate, complex work that is produced on basic equipment.
