Louise McLean's Basket Exhibition

Flowerfield Gallery is currently showing the work of local basket maker and artist Louise McLean.  On display is a new range of work from Louise, entitled 'The Heritage Series', drawing inspiration from the surrounding coastline, green fields, gorse, heather and tumbling castle ruins she has created a stunning body of work.

Louise lifts the aesthetic quality of her work to exciting new levels by weaving with natural, found elements and by experimenting with oxides to dye the willow.  There really is an astounding array of pieces and techniques that show her personal artistic expression in every work.

The exhibition is now open and will run until 24th August.

Louise will also be giving some free demonstrations, the first was today and another on 23rd August.

There are also some workshops, spaces still available for Saturday 24th August.
