Eta Ingham Lawrie: The Joy of Colour

Tue – Sun, 10am – 4pm (closed 11 Dec – 8 Jan)

Bailiffgate Museum

A solo exhibition of textiles by Eta Ingham Lawrie.

Eta Ingham Lawrie was born in Offenbach am Main, Germany. While still at school she started helping in her mother’s tapestry studio. She went on to attend the Royal College of Art in the 1960s, and over the years has been giving courses in weaving and natural dyeing nationally. She has taken part in many group exhibitions both in the British Isles and overseas, and has in excess of forty solo exhibitions. Ingham Lawrie’s work has gone to private and public buildings and collections in Britain and internationally.

The inspiration for Ingham Lawrie’s woven wall-hangings comes from the ever-changing light over land and sea, and on which she bases her creations, using hand dyed fleece and wool, and many other natural materials.  She also incorporates natural found objects such as stone, shell, and wood into her weavings.

Please note that the exhibition is closed between 11 Dec – 8 Jan inclusive.
