Morley College

Works by Kara Crook and Lea Tunesi

The textile foundation at Morley College in London have their end of year show at The Gallery at Morley College until 28 June. Mon-Fri 11-6 Saturday 12-4, late night Thursday til 7. When I met up with Memake and Stitchworks at the Royal Festival Hall last week - we walked down Lower Marsh Street, stopping off for a splendid salad at Coopers, ogling vintage fashions galore at Radio Days and What The Butler Wore and breathing in the coffee and atmosphere of days long gone at Scooterworks, on our way to Morley College to see what delightful summer courses they are offering this year. They were in the middle of hanging the textile foundation show so we could only peep in the windows - and from what we could see it looks like a good show this year. Morley College is a really wonderful place to do a short course with lots of arts related subjects on offer where you can study just for the fun of it - without constant assessments and appraisals. The Gallery puts on really good art exhibitions all the year round too. On our way back we popped into Crockatt and Powell Booksellers where they had an exhibition of artist's books made by printmaking students from Morley which runs until 30 June.
