About this Event

Drawing Projects UK is pleased to present this Drawing Session in association with the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 on Tuesday 28 January 2020 from 1pm to 3pm. Stitched Responses: Traditional Techniques Reimagined is led by Jill Kennedy-McNeill of the Future Textiles Studio at Trinity Buoy Wharf.

The session will start in the exhibition in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London at 1pm.

Hand embroidery is an ancient art form with a very rich history and plenty of potential to be used in a contemporary context too. After visiting the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 exhibition and choosing a piece of work to respond to, you will be shown a number of hand embroidery techniques that you can use to produce your own unique art work by ‘drawing with stitch’. No previous experience is required and this is expected to be a mixed ability group.

Jill Kennedy-McNeill works in textiles, sculpture, installation, words and images, outcomes often mimic and abstract the body, exploring our corporeal and emotive relationships with the private, public and virtual realms, as well as considering how these often collide. Work is realised sometimes physically, sometimes symbolically, usually viscerally and -where possible- with humour. Much of her work is about occupying space, ownership, belonging and the social and political tensions that exist around these ideas.
