From 22 September 2023, Stitching and Beyond presents its biennial 10-day Out of Hand exhibition at the Long Gallery. Stitching and Beyond is a diverse group of textile artists exploring innovative approaches to textiles, fibre and mixed media arts. The exhibition is inclusive and open to all Stitching and Beyond members, whether they be professional or amateur artists.
Textile art in all its forms will be on display, including functional, decorative, fine and wearable works. A Curator’s and 6 People’s Choice awards are on offer. Visitors can enjoy live demonstrations and member attendants will be on hand to assist with visitor queries regarding exhibitors and their works, fibre art processes and practices, and group membership.
The popular ‘Member Challenge’ pieces for 2022 and 2023 will be displayed alongside the exhibition, and a bird-themed Lightbox exhibit will run concurrently and for a further fortnight.
