Art Textiles: Made in Britain: Illuminate
27 March – 20 April 2024
Art Textiles: Made in Britain comprises of Bethan Ash, Louise Baldwin, Jessica Grady, Cas Holmes, Christine Howell, Rosie James, Edwina Mackinnon, Sandra Meech, Sylvia Paul, Stephanie Redfern, Christine Restall, and Sarah Waters, all leading textile artists working in Britain today.
Art Textiles: Made in Britain presented their latest group show of work made to the theme of Illuminate – ‘to make something visible or bright, shining light on it or helping to clarify or explain’ resulting in an exciting display by a variety of artists exploring different ideas and media.
Each artist shone a light on a different aspect of life and explored ‘Illuminate’ in their own chosen way using many different textile techniques, including felting, quilting, embroidery, mixed media, recycled materials and more. We saw gold, glitter, neon, reflective fabrics and materials in ‘Illuminate’, Art Textiles:Made in Britain’s new exhibition.
Our aim is to promote British art textiles and to ensure their future; to introduce them to new audiences and to continually stretch the boundaries with new, vibrant work, both as individuals and as a group.
Art Textiles: Made in Britain was was the idea of Hilary Beattie, who started the group in 2013.
In 2023 our new show Illuminate premiered at the Knitting and Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace, London.
It will also be shown at Harrogate Convention Centre, before touring around the UK.
