Lizzie Farey

Currently on show at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh is Revealed: A Familiar Landscape featuring a selection of Angie's watercolour drawings and limited edition prints alongside Lizzie Farey's woven willow forms.

At the recent opening night I think it's fair to say all involved were taken by just how well the works - created in two very different mediums - sit together.

Lizzie originally worked in stained-glass but has been professionally weaving since 1997. Finding traditional basket weaving frustrating, she now creates abstract works for interiors - working since 2002 in her workshop in Dumfries & Galloway.

In 1997 CRAFTS magazine featured one of Lizzie's woven willow and catkin spheres on its cover which sparked interest from galleries and museums worldwide where her has exhibited ever since. Last year saw a major exhibition of Lizzie's work at the City Art Gallery in Edinburgh.

Revealed: A Familiar Landscape runs at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh until 3rd October 2012. And on Saturday 29th September between 11am and 12pm Lizzie will be giving a guided tour of the works (booking required).
