Work of Lace Tatter on Display at Farragut Town Hall

The Town of Farragut Arts Council presents tatter Carollyn Brown as the featured artist for July and August. The exhibit includes tatted doilies, ornaments and baby clothes, as well as handmade shuttles.

Tatted lace is created by winding cotton thread around two tiny shuttles. Brown refers to tatting as “an old art that is not as lost as it used to be.” She uses her blog, Carollyn’s Tatting Blog, to share tips and patterns with tatters from around the world.

She enjoys calligraphy, sewing, weaving, quilt-making and cake decorating, but tatting is her favorite art form. She’s from a creative family and has passed her creative pursuits on to her children. Her husband, Richard, helps her make beautiful shuttles that are also works of art.

Each month, the work of an artist or group of artists is featured in specially designed cases on the second floor of the rotunda in the Farragut Town Hall. For more information about this exhibit or to access a Featured Artist of the Month application, contact Lauren Cox at lcox@townoffarragut.org or 218-3372 or visit www.townoffarragut.org/artsandculture.

Farragut Town Hall is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 11408 Municipal Center Drive directly across from the Farragut Branch Post Office.IMG_7459 edited
