FlaX makes 10
Temporary Exhibition of Local Textile Artist's Work
FlaX makes 10 was founded in 2007 by a group of 6 artists who met at Craven College, Skipton, North Yorkshire, with the aim of creating and presenting contemporary and innovative artwork.
In 2017 the group celebrates its 10th anniversary with this, their 10th major exhibition, consisting of both retrospective and new pieces.
Bradford Industrial Museum is an ideal venue to showcase the groups diversity, reflecting the regions textile heritage, industrial and social history. FlaX responds to the natural and manmade environment by illustrating the world around us past and present and drawing inspiration from the north of England. The artists specialise in site-specific work with previous exhibitions at heritage venues including the National Trust's East Riddlesden Hall and Fountains Abbey; Farfield Mill at Sedburgh; Keighley's Cliffe Castle and Helmshore Textile Museum in Lancashire.
This 10th anniversary exhibition represents a decade of a worthwhile collaborative approach and acknowledges how the individual members of FlaX have enhanced and developed their creativity.
