World Wide Weave in New Lanark

Exhibition enjoyed by visitors to World Heritage Site

The World Wide Weave Exhibition has completed its show in New Lanark Mill and Village World Heritage Site in South Lanarkshire, Scotland from 23rd July - 6th August. The exhibition space was the historic Gallery Room, where the 19th centur. y social reformer and visionary Robert Owen held lectures and gave addresses to his work-force and also created his first classroom for young children, the forerunner of all primary education in the western world. The 75 pieces of unique and inspiring textile art from all over the world found a perfectly appropriate and beautiful setting in this historic site beside the Falls of Clyde, which were in full spate. Many visitors from around the world enjoyed and were inspired by the beautiful display of multi-coloured and finely detailed pieces of textile art. The exhibition has now moved on to Haddo House, a spectacular historic house belonging to the National Trust for Scotland, at Methlick, near Ellon, north of Aberdeen, opening on 14th August.
