Latest News from Byram Arcade
Woven Makers Market
14th & 15th June 2019
Artist Helen Williamson from Byram Art & Design Studio (36 Byram Arcade) will be contributing to the Woven Festival. Helen said,
“The installation will be made using woollen yarn. The cones of yarn will be placed in an old Victorian large wicker basket, used in mills to transport wool.
The basket will be located on the ground floor, near the main entrance. From the basket many lengths of coloured yarn will be drawn upwards to the second floor onto a supporting wire, and then across the full length of the arcade. (None of the yarn will come over the balconies onto the walkways).
The colourful installation is intended to have a strong visual impact and hopefully enjoyed by visitors to the arcade. Interested onlookers will maybe want to look down at the lengths of coloured yarns from the upper floors to better appreciate the artwork.”
