One of our artists Emma Whitehead Art is part of this fab exhibition. Launch is tomorrow at Craft NI Gallery 6-8pm

'Paper Magic' exhibition opens this Thursday, September 22nd at Craft NI Gallery. Join us from 6 - 8pm for an opportunity to meet the participating makers and to view the intriguing works up close!

The exhibition will focus on the medium of paper, one of the oldest and most familiar materials known to man, and its hidden potential of transformation. Through their artful mastery of skills such as cutting, pulping, folding, oiling and collaging, five talented makers will reveal the magical properties of paper in this new group show.

Paper has been with us from ancient times to the present, a constant companion recording our art, our ideas, our transactions and, sometimes, quietly changing the course of history itself. We take this flat, flimsy and ephemeral material for granted, yet it also has the power to be transformed.

Exhibiting makers: Sue Cathcart, Adele Pound, Emma Whitehead, Susan McKeever, Jayne Cherry.

We’re so delighted to do our famous fabric mountain again!

Back in 2017, the members of the TFA Studio Group decided they wanted to do a fabric swap.
And, as Top Floor Art was putting on a show for August Craft Month, they decided to create an interactive installation, and Fabric Mountain was born.
It was such a good idea we're doing it again!
It's simple; we take in fabric donations, build our mountain and show it this year as part of The Great Kit Challenge exhibition.
Then in the last week of the show (14th - 18th September), we invite you, the public, to come and help us dismantle the mountain by taking away that piece of fabric perfect for your current project. We ask you to leave a donation if you can, which goes to our chosen charity Belfast & Lisburn Women's Aid.
To attend, book your day to come and play!
