A new exhibition which focuses on ghost gear*, basketry skills and sustainability. The work of Lois Walpole is intrinsically linked to the materials used to create it and tells a powerful story of our attitude to the environment, exploring the artist’s personal history to express universal issues.
*‘ghost gear’ is the name that has been internationally given to all the ropes, nets and plastic debris that finds its way into the sea, most of which, but not all, is there as a consequence of commercial fishing practices. It is not only polluting the environment but is also dangerous for shipping and wildlife.
Open 10am – 5pm Wednesday – Saturday and 10am – 4pm Sunday.
