A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features Mixed Media work of artist Jean Bennet.
How are Textiles used in Art Therapy to capture feelings & emotions? Jean works as an art therapist and as a Lecturer in Theraputic Arts. In this YouTube, she shares ‘The Nep of Life’ Exhibition and explains some of the pieces.
Each art work starts with a foundation of thread and stitch before being combined with different mediums and discarded objects. Each piece tells a story.
I’ve recently rediscovered this footage – it was filmed at the Knitting and Stitching Show 2019.
It seems rather strange to hear the bustle of crowds in the background – feels like a lifetime ago.
