EdgeTextile Artists Scotland: Edging West is a new exhibition celebrating the fabric of the West Highland Way, which stretches for 96 miles from Milngavie to Fort William via Rannoch Moor and the Devil’s Staircase, through contemporary embroidery and sculptural textile work with varied individual interpretations and recollections of this celebrated walk in stitch and fabric. You won’t find any rain or wind in the gallery, but you will come across some alternative walking boots, a fanciful rain hat, richly imagined landscapes, flora, fauna, pebbles, and perhaps even a midge or two.

Edge Textile Artists Scotland is a group of contemporary textile artists whose work values the traditional skills of embroidery while dispelling the myths around its image. Their work ranges from historical hand-stitched techniques to creative textile sculpture and machine embroidery worked in a variety of media.
