What is it about the oriental?
Remember I mentioned a quilt exhibition in my walk at Belsay Hall and gardens on Monday? I thought that some of my craft working friends might like a closer look. Personally, I can look and admire, but I’m not much good at the making.
The hall is a mighty Palladian building and you step inside respectfully. The wood panelled walls and lofty ceilings create an interesting exhibition space, where my eyes are drawn immediately to the kimonos, bobbed hairstyles and coy smiles of the oriental ladies. There are many more traditional quilts, ranged throughout a series of rooms, with knowledgeable ladies, poised to enlighten and inform.
It was the last week of the exhibition when I was there, but Belsay regularly hosts events in the house, castle and magnificent gardens. Debbie has us dangling this week in Six Word Saturday. Why not join in?
Wishing you a great weekend!
