Talks and presentations by EAST
Some individual members also offer talks, presentations, demonstrations and workshops. Please see the individual ARTISTS page for details.
EAST @ Warner Textile Archive
Thirteen members looked at textiles and objects that dated from the 18th to the 20th century.
This talk looks at the inspirations, design ideas and the completion of the exhibition which began at the Knitting and Stitching Shows and is now part of the Warner Textile Archive Collection.
Between the Lines
Some members were inspired by the poetry and the art of the period, while others looked at more military matters including trench life, hand made grenades and barbed wire.
Stories of hardship but also stories of hope. Again this exhibition started at the Knitting and Stitching Shows and continues to travel during 2016. Members of EAST will be speaking at Landmark Arts Centre during July 2016.
Threads of Time
This talk looks at each of the panels, the inspiration for the final piece and the techniques involved to create a modern piece of textile art.
