Recent Exhibitions

Several exhibitions that I have been featured in finish today. It is always a joy to see your work in group shows even if one is not able to visit. I have written extensively about group exhibitions in my first (co-written with Cas Holmes) book ‘Connected Cloth’ in 2014. It has been reprinted several times.

I was delighted to have a small piece as part of the British Textile Biennial and Mr. X Stitch ‘s ‘Stitch your Story’ installation at Blackburn Cathedral:

‘From Canada to Kent’

I was also pleased to be a selected artist for ‘Beautiful Mess’ at the Fibre Works Gallery in British Columbia, near Vancouver, Canada. My piece ‘Me and my Toy Dog’ was a ‘happy accident’ made from scraps and leftover pieces of coated paper and textile found in my studio:

‘Undersea Mobile’ is a five hoop piece attached to a hanger, all made from recycled and found materials, selected for the 2nd Society for Embroidered Work exhibition in Rome ‘Surface and Depth‘ at the Palazzo Velli Expo. The exhibition looked wonderful and my thanks to Cat Frampton and the organising and hanging team. The video below is courtesy of Ailish Henderson.

I’m currently preparing for some in person workshops in November. Most are sold out but there are places on ‘Moving Memories’; with the ‘Creative Southwest’ textile group on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5th December 10 – 4 at Butterleigh Village Hall near Cullumpton, Devon. You can message them here for more information.

‘Stay at Home’

‘Stay at Home’ is currently on display at the wonderful Timeless Textiles gallery in Australia – the exhibition ‘It Ain’t the Archies’ continues until 5 December.

You can watch a video of me discussing my piece here:
