Quilts: From Utility to Art
I will be giving a lecture to the:
Regents Park Decorative & Fine Arts Society
October 3rd, 2017
St. John’s Wood Church Hall,
Lord’s Roundabout NW8 7NE
8pm; coffee serve at 7:30
£8 for non-members
This lecture traces the development of the quilt, from its origin as a utilitarian item to its rightful place in the world of art. Learn about the 3 traditional types of quilt, then discover how these styles have developed into textile art. The slide talk features antique quilts as well as the exciting work of 30 contemporary quilt artists.
I would love to see some quilters there too! I believe this is the first lecture they have organised about textiles, so it would be wonderful if there was a good turnout.
