In the middle of this large gallery RACHEL JOHN’s unusual knitted rugs spill out rainbow colours contrasting with the subtle textures of leather, paper and silk in SARAH JARRETT-KERR's bookbinding.

The adjoining glasshouse collections bring a contrast in mood.  Here CATHERINE HYDE’s watercolours are light in touch and reveal her move “from moonlight into the sun”, as she puts it.
