Barbara Cotterell is showing her latest work of repeating images and wire sculptures using recycled materials in the Cookham and Maidenhead Arts Trail taking place over the weekend of 16th/17th of September. She will be with two other artists at Venue 10, 30 Oaken Grove, SL6 6HQ. The Arts Trail will also be exhibiting at the stunning gallery at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Altwood Road, Maidenhead SL6 4PF from Tuesday 5  - Sunday 24th September.



Pippa Andrews took part in Fringe Art Bath's 'The Foundlings Project' from 27th May - 11 June 2017. 12 artists each prepared a box containing an inspiration which was given to an undisclosed artist to respond to.  The box was then given to a third artist to develop, alter or even destroy. The only constraint was that all work had to fit into the original box and be documented.  6 New Bond Street Place, Bath BA1 1BH. www.facebook.com/deicers.


Jane Neal has written a fascinating article on artists who've inspired her.  It is published in February 2017 on the great resource for textile artists, www.textile artist.org.

We are excited that three of us are featured in the first e-book to be produced by textileartist.org, 'Textiles Re:imagined'.  It features work by 50 textile artists working in 3D mixed media. Publication date was 14th April 2015.



in_touch in Cumbria 2014

Our first exhibition in the north of England took place at Farfield Mill, Sedburgh, Cumbria from 28 June - 24 August 2014. This was another chance to see our in_touch exhibition, first seen at the Knitting and Stitching Show in London and Harrogate in 2012 (see our exhibitions page for images). We use many different materials: paper yarn, newspaper, metal, teabags, recycled flour bags and tree bark to create work of a tactile nature and there is range of samples provided for visitors to handle.
