We are very pleased that the INSIGHTS exhibition will be on show at the Festival of Quilts, and the accompanying book will also be on sale. It has been a very strange time and the thought of going to see an exhibition is definitely something to look forward to, most of us have really missed those opportunities. TSG hope that you will be able to join us.
INSIGHTS is a reflection on creative practice in textile art. Through the publication and accompanying exhibition , the members of the Textile Study Group share their varied approaches to artistic practice: where ideas come from; how they develop and make work; where they work. All approaches are relevant, and differences are celebrated. INSIGHTS is edited by June Hill and Dr Melanie Miller, with additional essay contributions from Jane McKeating, Polly Binns, Claire Barber, Kay Greenlees and Lois Blackburn. The exhibition is curated by June Hill.
The Textile Study Group members’ work is varied in the themes addressed and techniques employed. Methods of work include hand stitch, machine stitch, quilting, constructed textiles, pieced textiles, lace-making, mixed-media, print, dye, sketchbooks and drawing, in both two and three dimensions. INSIGHTS includes work in progress and elements of process, as well as ‘finished’ work.
