Progression in Textiles: Open Studio and Make and Take and Exhibition
Progression in Textiles is a group of like minded people working to improve their practice over the year, Meeting at Eau Brink Studio.
During Open Studios we will be exhibiting work from both 2020 and 2021.
As a group of individuals we are all working on our own skill set, pushing the boundaries, exploring techniques and taking subjects as far as we can.
At our Textiles in Progress Exhibitions you will see a wide range of work and styles from hand and machine stitch, 2 and 3D items, traditional and experimental as well as a wide range of subject matter. You will have the chance to talk to some of the artists and will get an insight into their world.
Also you will be able to take part in a Make and Take. Make and Take is a great way to learn a new skill or to just have a go.
Our members want to help you learn and progress in your own practice of work so do dive in and try things out and ask questions.
