New Embroidery Group

Colour works

16 July - 25 August

 

The New Embroidery Group was founded in 1968. Their First president was the memorable Constance Howard, an extraordinary character, artist and teacher who transformed the status of embroidery and textile design. She inspired the Group and encouraged the members to work together and explore the possibilities of textile design, and to seek inspiration from each other through meetings and visits to museums, exhibitions and workshops.
 

The New Embroidery Group has a diverse membership that comes from a wide area across the UK. Common to all members is their love and appreciation of textile art. The Group has an exciting programme of events, meeting twice a year to listen to an invited speaker. They also plan visits to galleries and opportunities for workshops.

For this exhibition, some 15 individual members were asked to approach the theme of COLOURWORKS. They are all well versed in traditional and experimental techniques which is reflected in the individual work they each produce.

To maintain a high standard of craftsmanship all the finished pieces go through a selection process.
 

The final selection for this exhibition includes a mesmerizing vibrant and wide range of disciplines, ranging from soft wall hangings, framed textiles and 3D pieces.
