PROGRESSION in TEXTILES

 

Progression in Textiles is a group of like minded people working to improve their practice over the year, Meeting at Eau Brink Studio.

Bringing our work to the public through a series of events to show how we have  moved our practice on from basic beginnings to finished pieces.

As a group of individuals we are all working on our own skill set and intend to push the boundaries to explore a technique or subject to its persevered limits. Each year the members of the group plan to concentrate on a different technique  or subject to explore. As work progresses more than one technique will be involved adding already explored work into a new piece. Or part of previous works.

At our Textiles in Progress exhibitions you can see everything connected with the subject including the rejected pieces. Talking to the artists will give you an insight into their world. showing you how a piece was constructed including workbooks and samples.

Also whilst at some exhibitions 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 ask questions.

Exhibitions

In 2021 we hope our exhibited work can be seen in King’s Lynn at open studios, Norwich at the Forum, Brancaster Village Hall and the NEC in March and we are looking at the possibility of somewhere else in Norfolk nearer the end of the year.  For further information check out the Facebook page at regular intervals, in case of changes due to Covid.

Progression in Textiles is a group of eight and if you wish to join us please get in touch on admin@eaubrinkstudio.co.uk
