2017: Artistic Textile Workshops, Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust

Great Yarmouth textile banners

In July and August, I worked with Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust delivering a memory, heritage and culture themed textile course. The workshop were attended by local residents, and covered a range of textile art skills, including printing fabrics, image transfer techniques, and using text in textile art. Ideas and inspiration is drawn from personal memories of Great Yarmouth from the attendees and features printed photographs, poetry and memorabilia from their personal collections.

The finished textile banners were exhibited at St John’s Church, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk from 7th to 11th September 2017 and at Skippings Gallery, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk from 6th to 15th November.
