Our group consists of 3 textile and mixed media artists, we each have an enthusiasm and passion for all areas of textile art.
The formation of the group came about because of a visit to Coventry Cathedral, we were so inspired by the atmosphere of the old Cathedral and the work in the new Cathedral we just knew we would have to create some textile pieces reflecting what we had seen.
We made some enquiries at the Cathedral, and after showing them examples of past work and a draft of some ideas which we proposed making for the Cathedral, the Dean and his team were impressed with our samples and agreed to have our exhibition in the Chapel of Christ the Servant. Since then we have given talks about our experience in the Cathedral and exhibited this and other work in various venues.
We have all done various stages of City & Guilds and worked our way through different aspects of textile art. We are also members of other exhibiting groups and branches of the Embroiderers' Guild.
