An exhibition of new work by Deirdre Nelson “Lub I Loop” opens on 4th March in Skye! Deirdre has been working as lead artist on a Spincycle-Skye project for Atlas Arts.

Throughout Summer and Autumn 2013 Deirdre Nelson visited crofters from a range of stock clubs across Skye and Raasay. Each crofter donated a fleece that has been spun by a spinner from Skye. Deirdre has knitted individual socks to highlight wool, crofting, craft skills and the feet that walk the land. This creates a loop, from fleece to spun wool to knitting.
