Stories in Stitch is the theme for our group show at London’s Espacio Gallery. Members will illustrate events past and present, real or imagined using contemporary and traditional textiles techniques.
Spurn Point, which is being eroded over time, is a place imbued with memories of people who once lived there. Patti Taylor’s work gives glimpses into an old way of life – children playing on the beach, fisherfolk with their catch and poignantly, the brave volunteer lifeboat men wearing their flimsy cork lifejackets.
Other work will include explorations of childhood memories and travel, the 1953 flood, fantastical organic creations, and a fascinating and sometimes hilarious wartime diary in which world changing events and daily trivia are juxtaposed.
