Exhibition: “My Imagination: To Wear and To Show, Sandy Snowden”

Monday, 13 March to Monday, 27 March

Weekdays 10am until 4pm with a special Sunday opening on Sunday, 19th March

Sandy Snowden Exhibition of Wearable Art

We are delighted that Sandy Snowden will be running two workshops during this exhibition; Build a Fabric Workshop fusing fabrics to create new textiles, and Ramshackle Houses and Trees.

Sandy Snowden began with dressmaking as a young teen. Through the years her imagination has led her to develop unique garments. When Sandy became involved with developing children’s costumes for schools, she realised that her imagination was leading her to create things for which she needed skills in pattern drafting and advanced technique. She achieved her City and Guilds Diploma in Fashion and then taught at New Directions in Reading for several years. Sandy was a designer for the Bernina Fashion Show in 2007 and 2008 and now shows her gowns in the Fashion Show at the Festival of Quilts.

As you can imagine, the wardrobe is full to bursting with gowns and costumes. So along the way, Sandy has found she can pour her some of her imaginative ideas into Textile or Quilt Art…which take up much less space!

This exhibition focusses on the Wearable Art, but also shows examples of a selection from different series of Sandy’s Textile Art which seem to arise from a little thought and a lot of imagination. Sandy exhibits here in the UK as well as internationally in Quilt Shows, Galleries and Museums.

Threads Re-used – Waste Not Want Not

 

A note from the Group

” Our group has been in existence for about fifteen years and we got together through our shared interest in rag rugs and its recycling possibilities, after attending workshops in the Oxford area and beyond. We meet once a month on a Saturday at The Old School, Cumnor, which is a village just to the west of the city. The creative textile work we enjoy making is based upon the traditional rag rug techniques of hooking, prodding and braiding, but sometimes we expand our techniques to include knitting and fabric collage. Our aim is to make both decorative and functional items, to include rugs, mats, wall hangings, bags, cushions, fabric pictures and baskets by using recycled threads, string, wool and fabric whenever possible, pieces that have had an earlier life. This will be our fourth group exhibition and we are keen to show how these pre-loved items can be re-worked and transformed from “rags to riches”.”

 

There will be inspiring displays and literally thousands of fabrics and yarns to shop.
