2024 is going to be a wonderful year, with a programme that remains faithful to previous years, featuring Anne Kelly, who will be talking about houses and manors, Julie Arkell and her marvellous textile creations, and Mandy Pattullo with three dream themes: boros, portraits and red embroidery.
2024 will also be a year of diversity, as we welcome two new French artists: Sylviane Caretti and Isabelle Strutz. They'll be talking about their love of relics of the past, textile art and mixed media - I love the avenues of exploration they'll be proposing: genealogy, old photos and papers, bocage and family stories.
in regards to
Always passionate about fabrics and all its applications whether in artistic fields or those of fashion, it is only natural that at the age of 25 I began to be interested with emotion in patchwork .
Student of Nadine Rogeret at first, I very quickly satisfied my growing passion by taking lessons at Patchworks du Rouvray in Paris. And curiosity taking me to the fairs of the needle in celebration, to Sainte Marie aux Mines or to England to follow courses there, I got acquainted with textile art and all its variations and met artists that I love.
Embroidery, antique fabrics, quilts, fabric applications have become a kind of language for me.
