On escaping (or retiring) from teaching, sisters Chris Marflitt and Gill O’Donnell decided the time had come to develop their creative talents. Escape Tunnel Crafts is the result of that decision. In all their pieces they aim to look at life from a slightly “quirky” angle in order to produce items which are definitely unique. Consequently old traditions are revived to encourage the use of blossoming broomsticks as good luck symbols or to enable couples to “jump the broom”, while discarded scarves, clothes, plastic, ribbons and lace are up cycled into creative fashion accessories. Similarly everyday objects are photographed at unexpected angles to suggest letters of the alphabet and words and images merge together to suggest moods and provoke thought. Proud of their Geordie heritage, both sisters also have strong Yorkshire connections and their work reflects both their roots and love of travel while their poppies symbolise the influence of HM services in their lives.
24th September – end November 2015. Details to be advised.
Settle Flagmakers extravaganza – details to follow. Watch this space!
