Textile 21 Exhibition

As a member of Textile 21 I have been busy finishing my exhibit which is part of a 16 piece  installation. Fashioned in Silk is a departure for us away from the tradition textile art pictures on a wall exhibition. 16 silk organza toiles display embellishments that reflect members style and expertise. The image above is the one that is to appear in the local press and below a close up of the hem detail of my dress 'Effervescence'.

The circular design flows around the hem and employs free machine embroidery, applique and cable stitch. I used a wide range of silk fabrics.

The exhibition Fashioned in Silk starts 15th February to the 19th April at the Silk Museum, Park lane, Macclesfield, SK11 6TJ. Monday to Saturday 10am-3pm. Free Admission.

In addition we are having a Meet the Artists day on the 29th March as part of the Macclesfield Makers Day event. Roe Street, SK11 6UT. 10am-3pm.
