Event will be rich in fibre!

Artists will be showing the fruits of their labour at an exhibition next week. 

The Cork Textiles Network will celebrate 20 years with a three-month retrospective exhibition of members’ work at Triskel Christchurch, opening on Thursday 21 June at 6pm.

The Network is a collective membership body for makers who use textiles in their practise, promoting exchange between textile networks across Ireland and Europe. It also organizes workshops and classes in Cork on the use of textiles.

Chairman Mary Palmer said: “This is an opportunity for us to showcase what our members do. Over the years our members have made significant inroads to bringing fibre art into education with both adults and children through the classroom, libraries, and public spaces.”

The exhibition will feature art drawing from various areas of inspiration, from musical notation to derelict houses.

Kim-Ling Morris, a mixed media artist whose works are among those on display, repurposes discarded objects and fabrics using textile techniques.

Her piece, Lisa, is a portrait created from lengths of old computer cables using a slash and stitch method.

The exhibition will continue until 22 September.
