Ella Doran: Sheep to Seat, Fleece to Floor at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield 15 June — 15 September 2019 Entrance is free

Ellen Doran: Sheep to Seat, Fleece to Floor at Yorkshire Sculpture Park follows the journey of wool from the sheep which graze the historic landscape of YSP, from shearing to scouring, spinning to weaving and design to product development. The result is a display of beautiful bespoke furniture, furnishings and photographic prints, all of which are available to buy. As an homage to local products, suppliers and processes, the exhibition highlights the importance of the circular economy in reducing waste and sustaining livelihoods and traditions. It shines a light on one of the most versatile, sustainable, abundant and undervalued of the UK’s agricultural products: wool.
