ART SHOWS

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.
