TACTILE TOO Launch
Whitworth Art Gallery
7 March 2013 4 – 6 pm
Please do pop along to see TACTILE TOO…
TACTILE TOO is a contemporary textiles handling resource, showcasing the work of emerging Northwest textile makers. It can be used alongside the existing resource TACTILE in the gallery, or used in college or university setting. Both resources will be available for students and practicing textile makers to look at, handle, be inspired by and gain an understanding of career paths.
Using textile materials in surprising ways, to be playful and express ideas are all common approaches used by the selected TACTILE TOO artists.
The artists are:
· Laura-Jane Atkinson
· Emma Blackburn
· Karen Casper
· Chloe Hamill.
TACTILE TOO imaginatively demonstrates how textiles can convey powerful messages using a range of innovative techniques and evocative materials.
Hope to see you there.
