Cumbrian artist 'knocked out' by Dutch exhibition

Farfield Mill is the leading place for textiles in the North West. A restored Victorian woollen Mill, now an art gallery.

It's currently playing host to an exclusive Dutch exhibition.

The show, which has already been seen by over 2,000 people, was brought to the region by felt artist Chrissie Day.

"I saw this in Holland and I was knocked out and I spoke to the Dutch felters when I left and I said I was going to do everything I could to try to get this exhibition over into the UK so that you know we could see it over here and let more people see what felt was capable of doing."
