The light and airy space upstairs at the Chapel provided the perfect backdrop to these stunning textiles. Owen was on hand to offer his incredible knowledge of the weaving traditions and origins of individual pieces. We hope he will come again next year.

Owen Parry is a dealer, buying and selling, restoring and conserving for collectors, decorators and dealers. He has a fine knowledge and love of the weaving traditions of nomadic tribes, enabling him to specialise in pieces of rarity and beauty which are fast disappearing from the open market. Owen started as a repairer at the respected Lannowe Restoration Studio. He had the rare opportunity to handle and work on some of the best examples of early classical pieces and top quality tribal material on the market.

Owen exhibits several times a year in London and San Francisco and is a regular exhibitor around the world: ACOR (American Conference of Oriental Rugs); ICOC (International Conference of Oriental Rugs); Hali Fair (London); Sartirana (Italy); KARMA (Kensington Rug Merchants Association, London); LARTA (London Antique Rug and Textile Arts); Arts (San Francisco). He has had several articles published in HALI magazine.

The textiles and rugs are for sale.

We are launching a new paint product.

Join us at the Chapel, Market Street on Thursday 5th May at 7.30pm for a glass of wine and a presentaion talk by Oricalcum managing director, Michiel Brouns.

Linseed oil paint can be applied to any surface. It protects from weather and wind, the ravages of time and the changing seasons. In Sweden there is a long tradition of painting buildings and interiors with this paint. The reason it has survived for 500 years is because it really does provide protection.
