Treasured – Textilia3
Venue:Farfield Mill, Garsdale Road
Sedbergh, Cumbria LA10 5LW United Kingdom
What do we really value? Many things that have little or no monetary worth are deeply treasured – memories, family sayings, a particular poem or a special place.
- That old pair of jeans, darned, patched and repaired.
- A handmade gift, especially made for you.
- A childhood toy.
- A family heirloom.
- Your child’s first shoes.
- Your Grandmother’s mixing bowl.
One person’s rubbish is another’s treasure…
This is the starting point for new textile art from Textilia 3. A rich seam to be explored, resulting in work as diverse as the title suggests!
Textilia 3 is a well-established group of 14 contemporary textile artists, based in the North of England, who have exhibited widely in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria over the last 25 years. The artists employ many diverse textile and mixed media techniques, including hand and machine stitch, felt, appliqué, mixed media and painting, ceramics, dyeing and resists, print and manipulated fabrics and fibres. They make abstract, figurative and decorative pieces, wall art, 3D and wearable art.
