At the heart of English folk


Heaving the Lead exhibition

#1: Welcome!

Flo Brooks presents a new series of paintings and sculpture based on research from the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (VWML) to uncover some of the vernacular processes, materials and activities associated with twentieth century folk practices. The exhibition will focus on transitional activities surrounding the construction of folk costume, dance and prop in the otherwise invisible folds of everyday pursuits.
