31 October – 25 November

As one exhibition ends another begins and you can find my woven art work at Courtyard Arts in Hertford during November in a Herts Textiles exhibitions.

I have a few pieces in this exhibition, two new meadow tapestries, Meadow Sparkle and Meadow Glisten. And two new sculptural floral fishing line pieces, Bloom and Burst.

HTA was formed in 2004 under the umbrella of Herts Visual Arts with the idea of bringing textile practitioners together. At that time, textiles as an art/applied art form was less visible than today and membership served to exchange ideas, knowledge and to find support.

In the intervening years the visibility of textile art has increased. Membership of the group has evolved and this exhibition provides an exciting opportunity for HTA to celebrate 20 years of creativity and making. HTA members are all bound by fascination with fibre and fabric and delighted by the diversity of style and approach within the group.
This exhibition presents a snapshot of our varied recent work as material evidence of the thriving success that textile art and making has become.
