Members Showcase: Yuli Somme - textiles - Sat 20 Jan 2018 -Mon 05 Mar 2018

Showcase Room, Craft Shop. Open daily.

New work by Guild Member and textile artist Yuli Somme:  Yuli has worked with wool all her life and sells her products regularly in the Devon Guild shop.

Yuli has also been working in the strange world of funerals for 18 years, at first tentatively and by chance, and then committing herself to a wholehearted approach to the concept of burial in wool as a comforting, ecological and aesthetic way of honouring our dead. However, most of her work is now through direct commissioning from customers needing a viable and practical option for burial. She works closely with families and funeral directors.

This exhibition illustrates Yuli’s passion for wool; its ecology, culture and history and its potential as a valid and useful fibre, now and for the future.

The pieces in this exhibition are for sale. If you wish to make a purchase a member of staff in the shop will be able to help. Or cal us on 01626 832223
