Exhibition

Telling a Yarn: Remember, React, Re-tell - Threadmill Textile Artists

18 September - 22 December 2024
10.30am-4.00pm
Free to all

Threadmill are a group of fifteen textile and mixed media artists committed to the promotion of textiles as both a decorative and expressive art form. Together they seek to increase awareness and education at all levels through their exhibitions.

Remember

Remembering and respecting the history and heritage of the local woollen trade and acknowledging its close links with the culture, industry, and agriculture of the region.

The focus and central theme of the exhibition is a celebration of the rich heritage of the woollen industry of Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales. Wool in its many forms has been and to some extent remains an important part of the economy for these areas.

React

Reacting to and rekindling the use of wool as a base material in our textile work. Exploring of the potential of woollen fibres, threads, and fabrics, both new and re-purposed.

Reacting and responding to the rich and varied products of the woollen industry, past and present provides the valuable opportunity to address contemporary concerns regarding the re-use, recycling, and renewal of textiles. Repair and utilization of new and old materials and techniques allows for practical as well as experimental approaches to materials and techniques with opportunities to create new and exciting textile forms.

Re-tell

Re-telling and re-imagining the story through offering a number of different contemporary approaches to textile art.

As individuals, we offer different interpretations through our textile art. Our work is diverse in style and scale. The skills, techniques and processes we use are varied and innovative. For this exhibition, we will develop a body of work which tells new stories. By working together, we will create a cohesive exhibition which celebrates the present through the re-imagining of the past.
