Traverse Exhibiting at the Uttoxeter Quilt and Stitch Show

Traverse
Destinations
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.

West Bridgford Embroiderers’ Guild
Stepping Up and Out – in Nottingham and beyond

The West Bridgford Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild is a friendly and enthusiastic group of over 50 members. They share a wide range of interests within stitched textiles including embroidery and textile art. Many members exhibit their work both locally and nationally, others enjoy regular meetings and workshops where they can develop new interest and learn from the expertise of others.

This year’s exhibition draws inspiration from anything in the surrounding area. Members have been given free rein to interpret the theme in any way they wish, the only provisos were that the work has been completed in the past year and includes some stitch.

The group piece, Doors and Gates, is made up of individual canvases, all the same size and orientation and interpreted by members as they wish.
