Archipelagogo exhibition

The Silk Museum is thrilled to announce that the artist Felt Mistress will be exhibiting here this spring.  

Archipelagogo is an exhibition featuring 3D soft sculptures inspired by the life work and creativity of Tove Jansson created by the artist Felt Mistress - Louise Evans and Jonathan Edwards.  

Rather than take inspiration purely from Jansson’s most famous creations, The Moomins, the exhibition is instead inspired by the things that inspired Jansson herself – art, love, family, travel, and the geography of her native Finland.  

The exhibition was initially commissioned by the Lakes International Comic Art Festival and The Finnish Institute in London with the blessing of the Jansson family.  

We’re so lucky to host these incredible sculptures at the Silk Museum. Felt Mistress has been exhibited all over the world including shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Los Angeles, Mexico, Paris, Berlin, and London. Their work has been used in fashion shoots, ad campaigns, music videos and films.  

Come and see these beautifully created characters in amongst our collections. The work will be on display to coincide with Macc Pow!  Macclesfield’s Comic Art Festival.  

The pieces are on display around the galleries.  There will be a worksheet trail for children to use to find them.
