Slow Turning / Saturday 11th July  - Saturday 22nd August 2015

 

The Slow Turning exhibition at the Bluecoat Display Centre will feature leading artists working in wood, willow and natural fibres.

Many of the artists featured employ traditional wood turning techniques which are pushed to the limits to produce sculptural, contemporary vessels and forms. All talk about their love of wood and natural forms.
