For this exhibition eight members of the Merseyside based Re-View Textile group have made work utilising a variety of media, including screen print, hand and machine stitch, felt making and found materials.

Themes of containment, freedom, music, tree canopies, weddings, birds, sky, landscape, figures and camping are all inspired by the exhibition title.

Re-View Textile is a contemporary textile network founded in 2009.
