Event description

Description

As part of our new series Meet the Artist, we are pleased to have Sara Impey as our first guest.

Sara Impey makes textile artworks based on quiltmaking techniques that feature stitched lettering, using the sewing machine needle as a writing tool. With a background in journalism, she is interested in the stitched word. She writes her own texts, enabling her both to play with language and use the textile surface to comment on contemporary issues, often with a dash of humour. Her quilts have been exhibited nationally and internationally and she has won many awards. She has work in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and The Quilt Museum in York. Her book ‘Text in Textile Art’ was published by Anova Books in 2013.

In this workshop she will show examples of her textile work and talk about what inspires her. The first session will include a presentation by Sara and following a refreshment break, she will demonstarte her technique for stitched lettering on her sewing machine.
