A colourful exhibition of silk scarves comes to Hale Library

“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art” – Oscar Wilde.

Time to shake off drab winter and get ready for a riot of glorious colour at Hale Library next week (beginning the 13th March). Jane Mitchell will be bringing a selection of her silk scarves to the library for her seventh exhibition.

This is Jane's seventh exhibition at Hale Library

Jane taught Art & Design and Textiles for 28 years in Manchester before deciding to start a new adventure as a designer of silk scarves and made to measure silk dresses. All Jane’s work is original or limited edition so she can guarantee that customers won't bump into anyone wearing the same design.

The scarves are 100% crepe de chine with hand rolled edges. They are produced in batches of only 20 of each design. As a design runs out, Jane will then develop a new collection. It is rare to find pieces so limited, but Jane wants each customer to feel like they are wearing a piece of art. Each scarf comes gift wrapped with a greetings card and a useful 'How to tie your scarf' brochure.

Jane designs everything in a’ hutlet’ in her garden. Her dresses are made in the Traders Outlet in Sale by her friend also called Jane -  just to confuse things!
