Textile & Memory
Over the past year Dean Castle Textile Team and East Ayrshire Leisure's curatorial staff have worked closely with two textile lecturers from Middlesex University - Kathleen Mullaniff (artist) and Emma Dick (author). Alongside Pauline Mullaniff, textile artist, they have collaborated to create an exhibition of work that team members made at important or special periods in life – stitched in memory. Textile and Memory includes items and artworks in a variety of techniques, including minute crochet, art pieces, embroidery, weaving, dressmaking and gold work. The Loom Room includes displays of paintings by Andrew Law, Sir John Everett Millais, and Robert Gemmell Hutchison.
