Somerset Arts Week


Today was the last day of Somerset Arts Week and my final opportinity to see some local exhibitions.  I managed to nip out this afternoon to Kilver Court next to Gaymers cider mill and the Mulberry Factory Shop in Shepton Mallet.  This is one of the more interesting parts of the town where the Saul family have developed an up-market shopping emporium in the charming former wool mill buildings and a wedding venue in the Great House.

Above the farm shop I discovered The Link, ten artists exhibiting together, with a diverse range of pieces.  There were some delicate nuno felted wraps and hats by Silvia Prandini.  Her felting incorporates lace and metallic embellishments and all the pieces look very easy to wear.  

There were also some woven willow sculptures (spiky balls and wall hangings) by Angela Morley, and woven textiles by Mayumi Kaneko, muted, pastel colours, simple shapes inspired by nature.
