Nao Fukumoto at Air 3

Nao Fukumoto is taking part in this exhibition at the Crafts Study Centre, Farnham, showing the work of some of the artists in residence at nearby UCA. Nao’s hand woven and natural dyed textiles are being exhibited in the stairwell. I liked the way these shawls were finished with a few wrapped tassels and button fasteners making them easy and versatile to wear. Two other examples of Nao’s work are ikat dyed and woven, blue and white textiles incorporating subtle squares of contrasting colours. All the pieces are beautifully made and subtly coloured. I only had time for a flying visit and particularly wanted to see Nao’s work. I’m hoping to visit the exhibition again to see the work of the other artists.
