The exhibition takes place at The Art Pavilion, Mile End Park, London E3 4QY, 19 – 29 April 2024. Free entry.

I’ll be stewarding on the 29th April, so if you’re in London pop along and say ‘Hi!’

Our international exhibiting group brings together a diverse group of selected textile artists showcasing high-quality fine art textile practice and craftsmanship from around the world. Exhibiting as a group since 1998, we currently have 70 artists participating within PRISM Textiles, working together to challenge the common misconceptions surrounding textiles as an art form.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been accepted as a member of the very prestigious Prism Textiles Group. I’ve visited the exhibitions for many years and always aspired to be a member.

As part of my Prism application I submitted several artworks including Summer 2022.

“Prism are an international exhibiting group of textile artists, working together to dispel the common preconceptions surrounding textiles, and embracing both the contemporary approach and the rich traditions of cloth and stitch. The annual exhibition showcases the textile artwork of its members through selected curation to achieve this goal. ” Prism.

Each year the group holds an exhibition at Mile End Pavilion, London and I’m looking forward to taking part in the 2024 Edgelands exhibition.

Sabine Kaner – Meet the Artist

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features textile art by artist Sabine Kaner.

Sabine has a stash of old knitted garments and wool yarn, that she uses as the base for her textile art. The garments are discarded family jumpers or sourced from charity shops.

She uses her own life experiences to create her work. Each piece tells a story.

Sabine is a member of Prism and the The Society for Embroidered Work
