Costumes at Rheged ....... Marilyn's report

Rheged Visit
On 11th Oct a small group from KEG enjoyed a visit to the Costume Exhibition at Rheged
On display were 15 costumes worn by the leading actors in such films as Death on the Nile (1978) through to The Kings Speech (2010).  All the costumes were well displayed with large photographs of the actors along side. We were all very interested in being able to study at close quarters the costume detail, especially the embroidery.
I was particularly interested in the design boards produced for the costumes, which were very impressive, being works of art in themselves. I think they gave us all an insight into the minds of the designers.
The photographs below give a flavour of the exhibition, but it is well worth a visit and is on until 30th October 2011.

Other Exhibitions coming up are -
Lake Artists Winter Exhibition - 5th Nov’11 – 8th Jan’12  
WOW (World of Wool) on 14th Jan - 15th April 2012.  I shall look forward to seeing the seat covered in knitting for real!

This Year's Programme

I have posted the list of planned meetings for this year. The committee have tried to achieve a good balance here, of the traditional and  the contemporary, with workshops by our own members and outside tutors. They hope you will approve, and support the workshops each month. Also, you are welcome at the informal meetings, which are a lovely way to get to know other members, and spend some time just working on an ongoing project, enjoying a shared lunch, and trying your luck in the colour raffle.Bring a friend!
