Emma Dolman, Arts Director, said:
"Our recent exhibition by Anne Griffiths, celebrating all things Alice in Wonderland, was a delight on many levels. A delight to see such skill on display, a delight to see the inventiveness - every day something else to surprise and give pleasure, and a delight to see the reactions from visitors of all ages."
"The range of work was very impressive - mainly textiles and in so many forms. Commercially it was also an ideal exhibition as it gave visitors the opportunity to buy some of the lovely pieces to take home - cushions, handmade books, rabbits, pictures - unique works of art, beautifully made at very reasonable prices."
"I would highly recommend this exhibition."
Farfield Mill, Sedbergh - Alice's House
It was shown at Farfield Mill from 19th November 2011 - 1st January 2012 During its seven-week run, it received some really generous comments:
"Wonderful, very inspiring, beautifully created work - thoroughly enjoyable"
"This exhibition made me feel happy, thank you!"
"Very rarely do we see such exquisite work. Breathtaking."
Farfield Mill's curator, Elizabeth Eaton, also said:
"Given the Mill's drive to becoming a Centre of Excellence for textiles in the North West, Anne's innovative and exquisitely accomplished exhibition was just what we needed over the Christmas period - full of light and magic and brimming with ideas."
