WEFT, it was fab

This exhibition has been blogged abut extensively and I managed to get there last thursday.  Due to much work  and family turbulence since then, I've only been able to post about it now.

Astonishing  embroidery by the Chinese Suzhou school was on display, taking a traditional skill in to a contemporary interpretation.  This lotus pond was one of my favourite pieces although I can see how some bloggers have stated that it looked too much like a digital image for their liking.
