If you live in Auckland or are planning a visit, take a note of this new exhibition of contemporary weaving, which celebrates 60 years of the Handweavers and Spinners Guild of Auckland
The exhibition contains work by textile artists including Alison Francis whose most recent public work was created for the Birkenhead library, and Robyn Agnew, whose public works include a large wall hanging in Auckland’s Epsom Public Library.
Lynn Walsh, another of the exhibitors, sums up the experience of many textile enthusiasts:
“Fibre and yarn are my passions and colour is my soul-mate. I learned to spin when I was seven, knit when I was almost eight, sew when I was eight, crochet when I was ten, weave when I was in my fifties and now I dye fibre and yarn to fuel all those crafts as well as to make some money to support my fibre habit.“
The exhibition is up for just a short time from November 1st till November 16th, Wednesday till Sunday and is set throughout the rooms in the house.
The $10.00 entry (children and Heritage New Zealand members free) covers entry into Highwic. Pre booked groups are just $8.00 per person
