I am exhibiting three pieces of textile art in response to the theme: ‘Liminal’ – crossing the threshold.
‘Haphazard, misshapen branches from fallen trees pepper the route of my morning walks. I am always intrigued by the ambiguity of their forms – some gnarled and twisted, others smooth and elegant. It is the essence of creatures that lurk between the dead wood and my imagination that informs my felted and embroidered sculptures’.
The Contemporary Textile Fair 2013 was held at the Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington – March 8th -10th 2013
This was the first time I had exhibited at the Fair and I had a really enjoyable weekend. The Landmark Arts Centre building is a large Gothic style church with high vaulted ceilings and some beautiful stained glass windows. Despite its lofty ceilings the space was warm and inviting and the exhibitor stands were set out in well-lit booths.
My stand showing a digitally printed chair and a selection of silk throws, felt sculptures and replica doll of the Princess Elizabeth Tudor by Thomas Scrots 1534
- and these are some of my favourite textiles of the Fair:
Jacki Sleator – Nuno felt jackets and scarves
Valerie Huggins – Art quilts
Woodward and Davey – Hand knitted jackets. Hand-dyed silk and wool yarns. Absolutely beautiful
