Fabric Nation will be joining Hils Tranter and her lovely print works in her open house along with Chocolate Creative, Caroline d’Auria and Keren Cornelius. Our house will be open May 8th and 9th from 11am to 6pm. Tea and homemade cakes will also be on offer in the garden.
Here are a few pictures from last year, including Chocolate Creative's textiles and Hilary's prints.
With over 100 artists showing in beautiful locations across Dulwich, it should be an inspiring day out next weekend. There is some fantastic work being displayed, in many different mediums. I love anything vintage inspired and recycled, so hope to take a peek at Roddy & Ginger's prints, Clare Young's collages, Judy Hammond's pictures and the Skip Sisters discarded art. More women artists can also be seen at the SLWA showcase. As a longtime Londoner, I'm also drawn to work that explores our city and life in it. Adam Hemuss' paintings and prints promise just that as well as Helen Bridges' screen prints looking at the local history of Brixton. I'm enjoying the ways in which people are using different techniques to create new and exciting printed textiles, so hope to also see Trisha Needham's pea pod cushions and Sally and Peter Nencini's reupholstered furniture. Amelia Critchlow will be joining the Art Dog show, and finally, I don't want to miss Leah Germann and SLAG (South London Artists Group).
