Fabric of Place

04 October to 26 November

This is the culmination of a two year, community based, artist-in-residence project focusing on the distinctiveness of Reeth and the surrounding area of Swaledale. Four artists worked within the theme of ‘Outside In’ – both independently and with community groups – to explore different aspects of the area, its communities, and their relationship with where they live.
