Traces in Cloth

One of my favourite exhibits at the Festival of Quilts that I visited last month was the work of artist Diana Harrison – “Traces of Cloth”.  Her creations are all fabric based, combining a multitude of techniques including quilting, dying, shrinking, bleaching, burning and printing.

Sadly I have absolutely no idea how she was able to create such haunting pieces but it was a beautiful and unexpected art installation in the middle of a bustling exhibition.

I couldn’t find a website for her but if you google Diana Harrison Textile Artist you’ll find a load of blogs, interviews  and exhibition reviews and even a few videos – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1occcMYLIcY
