Following on from the success of last years collaboration we have once again joined forces with the first year textile students at Loughborough University to bring you this new project, ‘Our Textile Story’.
The latest exhibition from Charnwood Arts RawArt and Cafe_Space group is now on at Charnwood Museum, Queens Park, Loughborough.
The collection has been pulled together from work made for various projects over the last couple of years. Materials include found objects like keys and labels. As well as materials that have been donated, including threads, fabrics, buttons and beads.
Stories inspiring the artworks include, the fantasy of a treasure island, seashore treasures and the mysterious depths of a rockpool. Tracey Del Grecos piece reflects her childhood growing up by the sea in Wales and a favourite song lamenting the destruction of our environment.
Other pieces show butterflies and a summer garden, a hope of things to come. Julies rag rug flower suggests the lushness of a peony in full bloom.
You can enjoy this little collection of very personal work until the end of May during Charnwood Museums opening times.
