This is an exhibiting group that I belong to. We were originally all graduates of the Diploma in Stitched Textiles which used to run at East Berkshire College in Windsor and was run by Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn. I studied there from 2000-2003. The other tutor during this time was Ros Hills.

We are currently working on our next exhibition which has a working title of ‘Mapping of Colour’ which will launch at the knitting and stitching shows in 2018 with other venues to follow… the Sewing Machine Project will be shown at the knitting and stitching shows this autumn 2017 (see below)

Our last exhibition was the Sewing Machine Project, our starting point was to dismantle three old unwanted sewing machines. We have just shown this exhibition at South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell and will be showing it at the Landsdowne Gallery in Stroud as part of the Stroud International Textile Festival next May 2016.
We  exhibited in March 2013 at the ICHF Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch show  at the NEC in Birmingham with an exhibition called ‘Chinese Whispers’ and then between 14-27 October 2013 at south hill park with an exhibition showing development from the work in Birmingham

14-26 October 2013

Conversations which were not there before have now taken place…

A new, collaborative work by Studio 21 based on the concept of ‘making work and passing it on’ will be exhibited at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell 14-27 October 2013. This not-to-be missed event will also include workshops and demonstrations by Studio 21 Artists.

This exhibition contains small, exploratory ‘work-in progress’ pieces made at the beginning of the Chinese Whispers project that were shown at  ICHF, Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch, NEC, Birmingham in March 2013 and a new body of work that is a continuation of the project, shown here for the first time.

The starting point for this project was a Seeing Sound and a Practice Development workshop. The resulting work from these workshops was passed around the group, responded to and passed on again.

The small pieces track the development of ideas as the work was circulated amongst members of the group and show the resulting unexpected and exciting outcomes. During the past few months the collaboration has been further explored with the creation of larger  3-D and 2-D work. Ideas, drawings and finished work have been shared to extend our creativity and to encourage new ways of working and thinking.

Drawing / Mark-Making Workshop

Using media such as wax pastel, graphite and ink you will produce several collaborative, experimental drawings. A simple book-binding technique will be shown to enable you to produce a small book of exciting papers that could inspire future work.

Days: Weds 16 and Weds 23 October 2013
Time: 11am-1pm
Cost: £10 per session, including all materials

Making Workshop

Using materials that Studio 21 members enjoy working with: cloth, wire, thread (and a few surprise items), you will create several collaborative 3-D pieces. This is a wonderful opportunity to ‘play’ with materials and to let your imagination run riot.

Days: Sat 19 and Sat 26 October 2013
Time: 11am-1pm
Cost: £10 per session, including all materials
