Anglia Textile Works Spring Exhibition

Saturday 25 March to Sunday 23 April | Admission Free

Anglia Textile Works is a small but well-established group of eight contemporary textile artists based in East Anglia.  In 2017 the group celebrates its twentieth birthday.

This exhibition will include two specially made works, one inspired by Laurie Lee’s ‘Cider with Rosie’ and another on the theme of ‘red’, to reflect Stroud’s tradition of making cloth for soldiers’ uniforms.  Each artist will also exhibit two other pieces.

The group began their collaboration in 1997 to provide a stimulating environment in which to develop artistically, experiment with new ideas and techniques and find a wider audience for the innovative work being accomplished today in the textile arts.

Most of the group have a background in quilting – two are former Presidents of The Quilters’ Guild - but each has her own distinctive style.  They are united by a delight in both process and materials and the desire to translate their own creative visions on to the textile surface.  Many of them are inspired by the special qualities of the East Anglian landscape.
