Threads in the Ground x Forum Books

Threads in the Ground are a climate hope organisation who have been experimenting with an emerging eco-material made from fungus and waste products like straw and paper to make “mycelial blocks”.
Taking scrap cardboard - donated by The Bound - and following a series of public workshops where participants have contributed to creating these building blocks, the result is an award winning architect designed structure that will house a temporary bookshop in the gallery containing a selection of hand picked titles and that will play host to a programme of activities across its four week pop up.

Laura Pedley - Finding Hope

Inspired by big skies and open spaces Laura paints beautiful abstract landscapes. This - her first large scale solo exhibition at the gallery - is an opportunity for visitors to enjoy a broader selection of these ethereal works presented in her signature dreamlike soft pastel colour palette.

."Encountering beauty in wild, open spaces, where the vast sky stretches to the horizon, has given me sanctuary and peace in stormy seasons. In beautiful places I have found hope again."

Laura will open her exhibition as part of Late Shows with live painting in the gallery
