Art Textiles Made in Britain – ‘Found Exhibition’

A little textile inspiration from the Arnold’s Attic YouTube Collection. Today it features the ‘Found’ Exhibition by textile art group, Art Textiles Made in Britain.

Each beautiful artwork has been created using an element of discarded, reused or repurposed material. In this video Cas Holmes and fellow artists, guide us through the stunning pieces in the ‘Found Exhibition’ and share the stories behind the work.

This inspiring textile gallery shows us what is possible and what we can create within our own homes using what we all have to hand.
