THE silk museum has announced two fabulous exhibitions to be held in the summer.
International artist and fashion designer Andrea Zapp will exhibit in the new temporary gallery at the Park Lane Museum.
Andrea, from Germany, has taken inspiration from the textile collections at the Silk Museum to create a new line of dresses, scarves and ties.
Alongside this will be the ‘Home Ground’ exhibition, a contemporary craft exhibition celebrating the cultural heritage of six National League Football Clubs whose nicknames come from a local craft industry that has shaped the community.
Zoe Hillyard, a silk patchwork ceramist, has created the exhibits representing Macclesfield Town’s ‘Silkmen’.
The exhibitions will open on Friday, June 19.
