A Nature Table


Guest Blog Post on the textile artist Anne Kelly and her latest publication. Artist, tutor and author Anne Kelly's second book looks at the links between textile artists and the natural world. She was keen to make it accessible to as many different levels of artists, tutors and students as possible. JenniferCollierBirdhouse1-768x825 Anne has curated and included work from over 30 internationally known textile artists and institutions in the book, exploring a range of techniques from mixed media collage to digital print. She has drawn on her experience as an artist in residence at Sussex Prairies garden, exploring and interacting with green spaces. eg Anne wanted the book to reflect traditional and contemporary approaches to textiles. Her requests for contributions were met enthusiastically and she was spoilt for choice. Anne's work is celebrated for its quotidian and 'low tech' qualities and she shows how easily available materials can be transformed through print, stitch and construction techniques. TextileNatureJKTfin Artists featured include Jennifer Collier and her lamination techniques which enable her to make a diverse range of artworks like her birdhouse (pictured above). And the author and Chelsea College of Art tutor Mel Bowles. 'Textile Nature' will be launched at the Knitting and Stitching Shows in London, Dublin and Harrogate later this year.
