Despite the weather, we managed to get to Wales
to see the Anni Albers exhibition at the Ruthin Craft Centre.
We stayed in a lovely B&B, and spent the morning in the Craft Centre.
I was incredibly curious to see Anni Albers' work - that I have so often seen on the web! - for real.
This was definitely my favourite.
The other part of the exhibition was formed by works by Dörte Behn, Christopher Farr, Ptolemy Mann,
Fiona Mathison, Laura Thomas and Wallace Sewell.
The piece that intrigued me the most was "three x five" by Laura Thomas :
a wall hanging composed of strips woven triaxially,
with a colour combination that I didn't like at the beginning but then found very compelling,
both from a distance and close up.
Her great blog (with more photos!) here.
The Craft Centre is a beautiful space, and I had fun trying to read the incredible amount of consonants
in the Welsh captions!
