A Thread Running Through

A Thread Running Through


An exhibition of new textile art by Textilia 3
The landscape in which we live, meet and work is a northern landscape largely shaped by cloth. Distinctive weavers cottages line the canals and perch on hillsides, tall mill chimneys dominate the valleys. We meet at Cliffe Castle, a grand and richly furnished house created by the Butterfields, mill owners and merchants. Some of us have mill workers in our ancestry, weaving in our memories and in our blood.
Thread Running Through draws on this rich history, inspiring us to explore the thread that runs through our stories, landscapes and work.
Textilia 3 is a well-established group of 13 contemporary textile artists, based in the North of England, meeting here at Cliffe Castle. The group have exhibited widely in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria over the last 25 years.
