An exhibition capturing the beauty of South West Scotland in wool and thread, with felted and stitched artworks reflecting the landscape, folklore, history and wildlife of this magnificent part of the country. Using wet and needle felting techniques, and embellished with hand embroidery, the artworks depict local landmarks, distinctive birdlife, plants of the hedgerow, animals of the field, and ancient stories which enrich Scotland’s heritage. Artist and historian Sue Hughes has drawn on her interest and knowledge of these stories to create these unique pieces. She loves to blend her fascination with folklore, heritage, herbal histories, the countryside of South West Scotland and the life and work of Robert Burns into her creative compositions.
