This Friday from 6 - 8pm our friend, and first-rate textile artist, Cassandra Harrison’s exhibition; 'The connecting thread' opens it's doors for the first time on a world tour. The exhibition showcases her two year journey of discover to uncover the story behind her ancestor's movements.

The legacy of her family is rather exciting; she has stumbled across some notes and photos left behind by her late grandfather (a former FBI agent), which formed the inspiration for the exhibition.

This exhibition is about realizing how decisions made hundreds of years ago effect who you are, how you are and where you are today and promises to be truly extraordinary. As you can see from her work, this is a show not to be missed!

2011 is the year for expansion at Mushroom Works. We have lots planned and in the pipeline for this year, mostly involving opening new studio spaces to satiate the need for affordable studios by the numerous creative people in the North East.

First up, we will be opening 9 studios in Kingsland Church in the heart of the Byker Wall. This 'jewel in the wall' has been beautifully refurbished and is now ready to be filled full of creative people.
