Angela Strange's Exhibition of earth, sea and sky reflections in felt takes place at the Florence Arts Centre in Egremont between May 22nd and July 10th 2015. As a textile artist, Angela works with wool fibres to unlock the creative possibilities of this beautiful natural product. Linked to the Cumbrian landscape, sheep on the hills and fleece on the fence, the visual and tactile properties of wool allows the artist to manipulate and design beautiful pieces of work using nothing but friction, soap and water. Felt is the oldest form of fabric known to humankind and sophisticated felted artefacts have been found in the permafrost in a tomb in Siberia dated to 600AD.
 
The Arts Centre at Florence Mine is usually open Mondays to Saturday from 10.30am to 4pm but phone in advance to be sure on 01946 824946.
