Bobby Britnell (11.00am)

Bobby has always loved making things and needlework was the subject that she enjoyed most at school. Doing something creative with her hands was the obvious career path to follow. After working in theatrical costume and high class tailoring she trained to become a teacher and, whilst teaching, studied for C&G Embroidery I and II. As a member of high profile groups, including the Practical Study Group and “Six”, Bobby has exhibited widely and her work is in both public and private collections. Although she works from a number of different themes and sources, what remains consistent is the need to draw. Being wholly passionate about what she does enables her to become totally absorbed in the entire process, from idea through to execution.

Madeira Lecture by
Michael Brennand-Wood (2.00pm)

Visual artist, curator, lecturer, and arts consultant Michael is internationally regarded as one of the most innovative and inspiring artists working in textiles. He believes that the most innovative contemporary textiles emanate from an assured understanding of both textile technique and history. This has led him to explore and develop his own techniques, inventing many new and imaginative ways of integrating textiles with other media. Work inspired by traditions of floral imagery have utilised computerised machine embroidery, acrylic paint, wood, glass and collage. Exploring the illusionary space between two and three dimensions, these works are colourful, dramatic, rhythmic and holographic in feel, with intense detail that merges at the distance into strongly optical configurations.
