HANGING BY A THREAD
Carousel Textile Artists
30th November - 11th December 2021
Carousel is an eclectic group of London based artists who enjoy exhibiting their experimental textiles. They work collaboratively to inspire a shared passion for fibre, stitch, print and mixed media.
As a group they came together after meeting at the advanced textile workshop at a college in Lambeth and come from a wide variety of backgrounds, from social work and education to musician and carnival costume designer. The group name reflects a group in motion but with a nod to playfulness. They have a regular programme of pop-up exhibitions in the open air.
The theme Hanging by a Thread both exposes and celebrates their concerns about the changing world around them and their individual responses.
The group challenges themselves to think beyond the surface and using a firm foundation in textile technique each artist has developed their individual theme in their own style. Techniques used include printing, dyeing, weaving, knitting, shibori, machine and hand embroidery. Colour plays a large part in the work and the interplay of colour and texture informs the finished pieces.
