The exhibition all went off really well and seemed well attended when I was on duty to steward, despite the awful weather. I got lots of complements for my 'Pylon Sky' piece particularly.
I finally got a chance to go round the exhibition as a visitor and these are the pieces that especially caught my eye.
Right - a small embroidery from City and Guilds Level 3 Embroidery.
Below is my favourite quilt from the City and Guilds Level 3 Patchwork and Quilting room. It is obviously inspired by Southampton Docks and all the shipping containers have a raised ribbed surface.
Below is my favourite piece from the final year degree students on the FdA Stitched Textiles course. It is about being alone in a public space and you can't see too well on the photo but there are dozens of figures stitched into the background.
Below is another final year piece - a cape about the public protests held this year - each side was different but all very well done.
This was a favourite from the Year 1 & 2 room of the FdA. It depicts a galaxy and is made in 4 layers to build up to a stunning 3D piece.
Finally these 3 pieces were from the Contemporary Textiles Workshop students, who meet regularly to keep challenging themselves on stitched textiles pieces.
So the exhibition is over and the course is over - what will I do next? I will keep on posting about my creations but it might not be so regular, unless I do another course.
