Tony's Gallery on Sclater Street, Shoreditch is currently a little fluffier than usual. The small art space is packed to the pelmet with the woolly creations of Olek, a Polish-born, New York-based artist whose creativity finds an outlet in yarn. This show, her first UK solo exhibition, is titled “I do not expect to be a mother but I do expect to die alone”, and crams in numerous household objects and hangings formed in crochet.

Read more about the artist and her work here, and visit Tony's Gallery (68 Sclater Street) between now and 23 March. The gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday, 11am-7pm. Perhaps best avoided when you've got a hangover, though.
