Join us for our third in-conversation event Appetites for Destruction with textiles based artists Celia Pym and Rachael Matthews. Practitioners and enthusiasts from all backgrounds and levels of experience are invited to bring along a stalled textile project or problematic piece of textiles.
Appetites for destruction reside in textile makers yet textiles is often taught and considered as a contemplative and time honoured medium. Textiles rarely last forever, and sometimes through neglect or instinct we cut, hack, rip, chop, stain or let our textiles rot.
Starting with a discussion on controlled frenzies: deconstructive and reconstructive projects, Pym and Matthews will expand the conversation out to the audience looking at collective solutions to their individual textile problems.
Celia Pym is an artist whose work is featured in the current exhibition What Do I Need to Do to Make It OK? Rachael Matthews is an artist who runs Prick your Finger a constructed textiles resource centre, specialising in UK made yarns, exhibitions and pattern cutting library.
All Welcome, bring your textiles or just come for the talk.
