Diverse Threads is a long-standing textiles and mixed media group, and I have been a member now for 10 years. We are very happy to have been invited to exhibit our work in the beautiful surroundings of Hull Minster.
Our theme is 'In the Deep' and we have all interpreted it in different ways. I have done some sea-inspired textile artworks using Cyanotype and indigo dyes. I also have included some in-depth charcoal studies, including one of Lillian Bilocca, a local woman who fought to improve health and safety in the fishing industry following the tragic sinking of 3 trawlers in early 1968. (Charcoal drawing inspired by photos from Hull Daily Mail.)
Free entry to visit the exhibition. Open Wednesdays to Saturdays from 7th to 31st October. Do come and visit!
