NZ textiles in the UK

New Zealand Textile Artists Hit the UK!

Joyce Fleming has the wonderful opportunity to show some of her Harakeke Lace at the huge Knit & Stitch Show in London, Harrogate and Dublin in October and November. Three of her 'birds' will be part of a group exhibition featuring around twenty NZ textile and fibre artists.

The project is organised by Alysn Midgelow-Marsden (a textile artist who tutors in NZ & internationally) and Arts Council Nelson. This is really exciting for her and she is pleased that the inclusion of her 'birds' means contemporary bobbin lace - uniquely New Zealand bobbin lace - will be represented at the show.

Find out more here (see a close up of blue lace on my Kokako in the opening image!)

They are using crowd funding to try to pay for the shipping of the work to the UK (and possibly a brochure) but you don't have to donate to read about the artists on this site so do take a look. There will be regular additions to the UPDATE section (scroll down) with one artist a day adding their information. Joyce has several  updates talking about the making of her lace.
