I’m still catching my breath from all the activity at the Minerva Centre last week. The screens were put in place, the exhibits hung, the exhibition opened and our first workshop took place.
The work done by members of Art Textiles:Made in Britain is amazing and so varied. Who would think that the title theme, Concealed, could be interpreted in so many ways and in such a range of media. Photographs definitely don’t do justice to the pieces and you really need to come and look at them for yourself but here are some of my favourites. In no particular order, just the route I took around the display screens.
The exhibition opened on Saturday morning, but before the front doors were unlocked Rosie James had already begun the first workshop in the QA workroom. I’ve attached some photos of what went on during the morning session as I had to leave at lunchtime. Hopefully someone took some later on in the day. If I can get hold of some I’ll update you later but even in the short time I was there I could feel the enthusiasm and desire to produce some excellent pieces. The participants had brought along photos and were working with Rosie to make some stitched versions. Truly inspiring!!!
That’s all for today. Thanks for reading.
