My latest exhibition Weave // Framents is drawing to a close so I’ve been reflecting on the project as a whole and how I cantinue to develop this as a new body of work.
This installation was inspired by my visits to the Archive at Sunny Bank Mills and the Finishing Room, home to Trouble at Mill. I used found objects and photographs from my research trips to create a series of embroidered text pieces and labels.
There is so much more for me to explore in the Archive and the mill as a whole so I would like to continue my research and sampling to see where this will lead.
I plan to visit the Archive in August again and do some sketching and take some photos which I can develop into new embroideries.
Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to my fellow artists, the staff at Sunny Bank Mills and Mat Dale for his wonderful photographs.
