International Textile Exhibition – Through the SeasonsFarfield Mill | Garsdale Road | LA10 5LW
January 11 @ 10:30 am - February 27 @ 4:00 pm
The coldness of winter, the mildness of spring, the sun of summer or the shades of the fall.
This year’s theme ‘Through the Seasons’ has been interpreted by each artist in a different way, with works focusing on one season, changing seasons and even the seasons of human lives, represented through realism or abstract colour and form.
All the pieces in the exhibition were originally entered into a textile competition held in the prestigious annual ‘Carrefour du Patchwork Meeting’, which is hosted each September in Alsace, France, close to the birthplace of the Amish people who are renowned for their stunning patchwork quilts.
Techniques on display include patchworking, hand and machine quilting, embroidery, applique, painting, hand-stitching using textiles as varied as metallic wool, tulle, chiffon, felt, silk and linen.
