Woven exhibition

WOVEN is a 1:12 scale exhibition of 3D artwork by three Macclesfield-based artists, Lorna Ellen, Marianda T and Tyra Till, who explored woven techniques in different materials including clay, found objects, histories, words, and using the ancient technique of tablet weaving. 

The exhibition opens in the 1:12 scale The Doll’s House Art Gallery and Museum from May 11th in the 1:1 scale Machine Room at the Silk Museum in Macclesfield. There will be a preview on Friday May 10th from 6-8pm, open to all (including under 16s) with drinks and nibbles and the opportunity to meet the artists and mingle with other art, miniature and heritage lovers. 

Lorna Ellen is a multidisciplinary craftivist whose artistic work revolves around environmental consciousness and creative reuse. Grounded in a deep respect for the planet, she masterfully intertwines man-made waste materials with natural ones, highlighting the stark contrasts and symbiosis between them. Trained in textiles, Lorna demonstrates a unique blend of traditional techniques, like felting, crochet, and embroidery, within contemporary art contexts. Her works not only shed light on pressing environmental issues but also push the boundaries of textile art, advocating for both sustainability and the evolution of craft. Through her pieces, Lorna challenges perceptions, urging viewers to rethink their relationship with the environment and consider the impact of their choices on the planet. 

Marianda T is an artist making small sculptural objects with meaning and stories from things found along the way... In the past year she has spent a lot of time investing in her artistic future by building her own studio from the ground up, and it’s lovely! 


Tyra Till is an artist who is preoccupied with Unity; reaching and enabling people from different walks of life. Her work is about breaking down barriers between things and between people. She counters the fragmentation of human society into ‘individuals’ and her practice concerns joining and bridging contrasting elements & constituencies.
