"There are interesting Shetland connections through all the craftmakers' work in the first group of the Summer Showcases. Karlin Anderson's Oppenwark collection draws inspiration from Shetland lace, which is also a big influence on Sharon McGeady's (The Pottery, North Roe) ceramics. Sharon explores the historical use of materials in Shetland and incorporates dried grasses through her ceramics. Lois Walpole is using traditional basketry techniques with unexpected materials like plastic and other found materials from Shetland beaches. Emma Geddes’ (Aamos Designs) weaving patterns are inspired by traditional Fair Isle knitting." - Ruth Oliver - Creative Project Programmer - Curated Retail & Exhibitions.
The exhibition can be viewed during Bonhoga Gallery opening hours of 10:30 - 4:30, Wednesday – Sunday.
