Island to Island

Today’s programme comes to you from the Hodgson-Loom Gallery in Laxey Woollen Mills where Tapestry Artists Ros Bryant and Louise Martin are exhibiting a collection of work inspired by their journey from their home in Orkney, over land and sea to the Isle of Man.


Ros Bryant and Louise Martin talked to us about their exhibition at the Hodgson-Loom Gallery which runs until the 19th of July in Laxey so do head along to that to see their incredibly intricate work.
