CONTEMPORARY textiles inspired by the Orient are on display at a museum.

Following the success of their exhibition in September 2000, BA (Hons) textiles and surface design students from Cleveland College of Art and Design have returned to the Oriental Museum, in Durham, for a second display.

Entitled Fabrikku, their exhibition draws on a range of Oriental styles and materials, and features innovative designs in striking colours. Museum custodian Mel Smith is pictured admiring the work of Joanna Coupland. The exhibition runs until February 24.
