Arts: TIME Exhibition
TIME: An exhibition of Textile Art by Simone Frater-Russell & Nerissa Cargill Thompson in January 2018
Time to stop, Time to notice, Time to remember, Time to appreciate, Time to reflect.
An exhibition of textiles, print and photography by two Manchester based artists. Simone Frater-Russell’s work documents the nature of memory while Nerissa Cargill Thompson encourages the viewer to stop and look closer, to find beauty, value and purpose in the old and discarded. Both artists explore change over time be that physical shape and appearance or the fleeting, ethereal and sometimes unreliable way individuals recall events or people.
HYGGE PANEL: Textile Workshop
2017 has been a year of “hygge,” a Danish term defined as “a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or wellbeing.”
Simone and Nerissa will run a workshop to create a patchwork panel or collage representing your “happy place”, using simple printing techniques such as stitch and appliqué to capture the essence of hygge through colour, textures and pattern/motifs. Scraps of fabric and old clothes to include in your piece to make it even more personal. Text such as favourite quotes or mottos can also be added using either print or stitch. The panels would be suitable to be framed and hung on the wall or attached to a cushion as a visual reminder of the feeling of safety & wellbeing and to encourage positivity.
