Wool House














It's all about wool, natural, renewable and sustainable. It's a tremendous exhibition backed by The Campaign for Wool, and everybody involved in this extraordinary creation has given their time for free.

Such an inspirational event, do try and get to see it, be prepared though to get very excited about textiles and yarn.  Somerset House on the Strand until March 24th,  admission is free so you've no excuse.

  2. I thought that I recognised the building - the sheep must be standing where the ice rink is in the winter time.

    1. Yes they are where the ice rink is situated, the exhibition is just to the right of them with it's own entrance.

  5. Isn't it a wonderful exhibition! I love your photos. I'm lucky enough to have one of my paintings in Mary Fox Linton's drawing room. I blogged about it too. http://www.jessicazoob.com/blog/i-want-a-mammoth-chair
