100 years in the making
An exhibition of fused and slumped glass by Charles Sharpe and stitched textiles by Jill Sharpe. They will be showing new work that reflects both their individual approaches and mutual influences. Also included will be a retrospective selection of Charles’ turned wood and Jill’s dressmaking representing the work of past years.
 
Charles and Jill Sharpe have been practicing their crafts for all their working lives. Charles originally trained as a carpenter and joiner and later developed a practice in wood turning. When Charles became unable to work with wood through ill health he began working with glass which had always been one of his interests. Jill worked as a dressmaker for many years before becoming interested in patchwork and quilting. This then became refined in the making of wall hung pieces. Jill has recently made a new Altar frontal for St Catherine’s Chapel in the Cathedral.
 
Exhibition free to attend. Open 9.30am - 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10.00am - 3.00pm on Sundays.
