Ruthin Craft Centre

Gallery 1

The ‘wit’ of the stitch.

16 July – 25 September 2016
Eleanor Edwardes, Louise Gardiner, Caren Garfen, Cindy Hickok, Rachael Howard, Karen Nicol, Lynn Setterington, Susie Vickery
The ‘wit’ of the stitch features the work of eight makers who each combine an adept use of stitch with an acuity of perception. Some play with the heritage of needlecraft, others explore the expressive potential of stitch to create wry and revealing observations of contemporary life. All seek to raise thoughts as well as smiles in response.
‘I “paint” every day with thread as my medium, the needle as my paintbrush, the sewing machine an extension of arm. With foot on pedal and tongue in cheek, I create works that satisfy my desire to express life as I see it.’ – Cindy Hickok
Curated by June Hill
