National Open Textiles Exhibition

I have a new work on show at this exhibition at the Funky Aardvark in Chester.

It is called “Dripping damask” and is my exploration of stitching on a piece of Irish Double Damask along the lines of the woven design. I wanted to bring out the design but also to explore the idea of not completing the whole design but in letting the threads loose along a halfway line. This has the effect of dripping paint, as the threads hang together, the colour of the threads becomes prominent.
