We are passionate about textiles at Loop and are very excited to bring you two new workshops this spring with textile artists Anne Kelly and Ekta Kaul. Anne Kelly is an award-winning textile artist, author and tutor based in the UK, exhibiting and teaching internationally. She has authored several beautiful books, about her collaborative works, dealing with nature, folk art, travel and migration.
Let’s talk about mending this week. We so often focus on the making of fabrics whether it’s knitting or crocheting but what do we do with all of the wonderful knitwear once it has been created and starting to wear out from years of wear and love?
For a real treat in this new year, we have organised a workshop with the very talented textile artist and author Mandy Patullo!Mandy’s book Textiles Transformed has been especially popular with all of you this past year. It’s no wonder as it such a fantastic resource of information and inspiration for re-purposing our cherished fabrics into beautiful works of art. Currently on pre-order at Loop, we are expecting more copies in the next week!
