  3. Walton Flax Exchange

    Shane Waltener
    9 November – 10 December, 2022

    Walton Flax Exchange is a month-long exhibition with local artist Shane Waltener. Using flax, grown and harvested in Walton, the exhibition will display the processing of the crop from plant to linen, introducing the idea of soil-to-soil clothing - clothing made from fabric which is entirely compostable. Flax sculptures and objects will be interwoven with public activities and performances, inviting other practitioners and members of the public to skill exchange and share knowledge on the subject. The exhibition aims to generate an interest in the production of Walton fabric and create a local ‘fibershed’, a term coined by Rebecca Burgess in 2010, describing a network connecting growers, makers and consumers.
