Orientation - Textile exhibition @ Forge Mill Needle Museum, Redditch

Hilary Beattie - Series of 3 Oriental Pots
A lovely autumnal Saturday afternoon took me to see an exhibition of textiles and mixed-media at one of my favourite museums, the Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch.  The exhibition called Orientation was by Midlands based textile group (apart from Catherine Nicholls in Vancouver) SiX and Friends, taking their inspiration from all things Oriental and Eastern.  Apart from the exhibitions this is a really interesting place to visit with its history steeped in needle making in the Redditch area and so of course inextricably linked to sewing.  There is always have a textile exhibition at this time of year and I just managed to get here on the penultimate day before it closed.  Here is a selection of my favourites:
