CONNECTIONS by TOPstitch
21st November - 2nd December 2023
Open View: 23rd November 6-8pm
Textile Connections - a talk by Helen Durrant: 25th November 2-3pm
“CONNECTIONS” Is presented by TOPstitch, the well-known Norwich based textile art group. With new members, since last exhibiting at Anteros, each has been inspired to create pieces to form a connected series.
From classical to abstract, traditional to contemporary, using hand and machine embroidery and mixing media, the pieces showcase the divergent talents of the textile artists. The group then converges with a jigsaw presentation of stitchery where individual personalities are evident.
To accompany the exhibition, on Saturday 25th November 2-3pm, member Helen Durrant will be hosting a talk about the textile connection and techniques members of TOP stitch have used to create these unique pieces. Helen will talk about her own work inspired by wrought iron as well as some thoughts on the creative process and challenges she faced. Helen is an experienced Adult Education Lecturer. She trained as an Archaeologist and Museum Curator and worked with important social history collections at the Science Museum, Kirkcaldy and York . She took her city and Guild qualifications at Missenden Abbey specialising in machine embroidery techniques. She is committed to encouraging creativity and teaches from her home in Norwich as well as lecturing for special interest groups. This is a free event and there is no need to book. The talk will take place in our Music Room.
Members may be present throughout the exhibition, will be at the open view on Thursday 23rd November (6-8pm) and on Saturday afternoon, 2nd December, come and meet them.
