Textile Exhibition: ‘Got the T-shirt.’

posted 20 Apr 2017, 04:07 by Erica Thomson
Elements is a collaboration of two talented textile artists, Brenda Hargood and Chris Yates. Our previous exhibition here at 78 Derngate, entitled 'Footsteps',  left us with masses of unexplored inspiration, say the artists, which prompted them to begin work on a second 'road trip', which they have humorously titled, 'Got the T Shirt'!  The artists explain, this exhibition is again based on our travels to other countries but also explores the beautiful scenery, flora and fauna of the United Kingdom.  The exhibited work includes machine embroidery, appliqué, hand embroidery and mixed media. Some fabrics are either hand dyed or hand painted. All the work is original, exclusively designed and produced by the artists for this exhibition. Also pdf below
