Laura, Linda and Annabel are aboslutely thrilled to be able to give you a link to the latest Through Our Hands, The Magazine, which is as always, FREE to everyone to read on line.
It’s jam-packed full of wonderful reviews and articles including an exclusive by Alice Kettle who has written a special piece just for Through Our Hands called Significant Stitch. Alice is Professor of Textile Art at Manchester School of Art, and is exhibiting in “Significance” at the Knitting and Stitching Shows at Alexandra Palace and Harrogate. She takes us through the works which have all been inspired by the Gawthorpe Textiles Collection.
We’re also delighted to share articles by all your favourite authors. Anne Williams concludes her series of interviews with well-known artists, following a visit to the exhibition “Unfinished” at the Courtauld Gallery by asking them about their own unfinished work. In this last part, she chats to Jenni Dutton, Michala Gyetvai, and Sara Impey. Terry Grant’s article, Crow, is inspired by an unusual and uninvited guest who decided to visit her basement one day and tease her cat!
We also have fabulous articles written by the artists themselves, including Janice Steven who makes amazingly colourful quilts; Beryl Taylor’s beautiful mixed media; Danish artist Jennifer Mary Lehm who explains how her sketchbook inspires and informs her stitched textiles; Gladys Paulus who specializes in 3D felted structures and Christine Chester, who tells us how important being taught and teaching is to her work. We also have features from Sue Benner a TOH Affiliate Artist, who explains the challenges behind a corporate commission, Kate Bridger gives us a step by step guide to the process of her house portraits; Eszter Bornemisza takes us through the latest Fibre Art International exhibit, and Tom Leytham explains his lifelong passion of form and light.
