Join the Soft Engineering textile artists for an in depth symposium in the Roof Gallery. The session features a discussion about their collaborative approach and a demonstration of how a bracelet can shape itself during the wet finishing process and is followed by a Q&A.


Soft Engineering brings together the work of three well established textile artists for the first time; Deidre Wood, Alison Ellen and Ann Richards. Having pursued separate careers in knitting and weaving, the artists found many common threads that have inspired them to work together to create this joint exhibition. These makers are all vigorously engaged in experiment and are passionate about materials, processes and the new forms emerging from them.  Despite employing different techniques and structures, they find that their approaches interconnect and cross over in intriguing and sometimes surprising ways.
