An exhibition of fabric art works produced by FLAX, responding to Wordsworth’s Duddon Sonnets.
Commissioned by Wordsworth Grasmere to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of William Wordsworth’s Duddon Sonnets, these multimedia art works were first exhibited at Dove Cottage in 2021 and have been re-hung with additional works.
FLAX is a group of textile and mixed media artists, plus a creative writer, whose work showcases individual skills, techniques and expressions.
“This exhibition has allowed us to interpret the distinctive, unique atmosphere that Wordsworth so well defined about this wild, remote valley with its ancient history of habitation, folk tales and beliefs in his River Duddon Sonnets.”
The ancient Holy Trinity Church, Millom was well-known to Wordsworth. The atmospheric setting by the Duddon Estuary is the perfect location to enjoy this unique exhibition.
Take a self-guided tour of Holy Trinity with the full colour guide book detailing the history of the Church, its relationship with Millom Castle and the Huddlestons, Lords of Millom.
Light refreshments available. Donations are welcome towards the upkeep of the fabric of the ancient building.
Hand sanitizer provided, please wear masks when moving about the Church.
Holy Trinity Church, Millom, LA18 5EY, located down a short lane beside Millom Castle on the A5093, about a mile north of the town. Ample parking.
