Re-Tellings Exhibition and a review of my online course in conjunction with Textileartist.org Exploring texture & Pattern
If you’d rather see it ‘in the flesh’ then head off to Sleaford for the 62 Group Ctrl/Shift exhibition where it will be shown in the main gallery at the National Centre for Craft & Design from 2 February to 22 April 2019.
Inspired by a visit to Greenpoint, Brooklyn the emphasis in this piece shifts slightly away from people, and towards place and contains a multitude of references from a specific place, New York and a specific time period 21/12/16 to 3/01/17.
A new approach and a move away from control in the design process meant the work evolved and had several incarnations during the making process rather than being pre-planned.
Crafts Council Directory Maker of the Week is Sue Stone whose exhibition ‘Displaced’ is currently on at Owen James Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
“It’s the starting of a new piece that’s my favourite part; the holding and manipulating of the cloth in my hands, the first stitches going in and the anticipation of what the result will be. Having gone through the long and often anxious process of thinking and forming ideas, I find the process and rhythm of making very restorative.”
We talk to Sue about what got her into making, what inspires her and what she’s currently working on. Read our full article here: http://bit.ly/2prBv4e
