A TEXTILE artist whose earliest memory is of a home loom and spinning wheel is to exhibit her work at a town's gallery.

Sharon Shaul, who grew up in Ramsbottom and Darwen, earliest childhood memories are visiting wool mills with her father, a pattern cutter, to select fabrics, as well as the spinning wheel and loom in the home of one of her father’s colleagues.

Sharon is exhibiting her art work as part of Fresh, a series of showcases being hosted by Clitheroe’s Platform Gallery, in Station Road, on the first weekend of every month.

This month’s Fresh also features Barking Mad, the woodturning of Blackburn couple Ken and Carole Barnes; and Lesley Woods Ceramics, the garden-themed ceramics, including elves, frogs, snails, green men and fairy doors, of Sawley woman Lesley Woods.

Fresh will also feature Bonkers Clutterbucks, the distinctive tins, boxes, dioramas and cloches of Kate and Peter Caruana of Haslingden.
