Two local exhibitions with curious Brontë-related content.

At the Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury, works by Teresa Whitfield:
A new exhibition is opening at the museum on Saturday entitled Drawing Museum Lace.
Teresa Whitfield’s ink drawings of lace are so realistic that they are often mistaken for actual pieces of lace – the process of drawing them is so labour intensive it is more a re-enactment of the lace-making process than just a likeness to the end product.
Her drawings occupy an unusual space between the drawing of an object and the recreation of it in a different medium.
The exhibition is the result of the artist’s many museum visits to research lace collections across the country.
It includes a life size recreation in ink of a black lace shawl owned by Charlotte Brontë [In the picture] (Source)
And in Gomersal, the Spen Valley Flower Club organizes a flower festival:
