Traverse Exhibiting at the Uttoxeter Quilt and Stitch Show

posted 6 Apr 2018, 12:32 by Suella Postles

The title of our first exhibition is ‘Destinations’ and our textile and mixed media work reveals different perspectives on that theme – some based on maps, views of the Earth from Space and real and imaginary landscapes. The Latin origins of the word, destinare, ‘make firm, establish’, led to it meaning ‘being destined for a place’ and we hope that this, our first exhibition, will begin to establish our place in the world of textile art.
