The Ailist – Issue Ten


Ailish Henderson shares her view on the world of embroidery - it's the Ailist!Lets talk Exhibitions!

First, lets throw back to November and The Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate.

I was teaching most of the time, but on the run from class to class I managed to catch up with my ‘faves’ and familiar faces:

Anne Kelly with her beautiful dolls house style pieces….

So much pattern and colour, we reviewed her book a couple of months ago

Then there was Cas Holmes…You may recognise this piece as it is the front cover to her recent book Textile Landscape (we reviewed it only a few months ago).

I taught some lovely students, who made a lot of colourful outcomes:

A sample from my Bonded Surfaces class.
Anyone into repair?  This was a sample from a student attending my Boro class, a modern twist on the Japanese technique.

There is just too much to talk about in one column, but safe to say that if you attend another year, you will not be bored.

Second, I can now announce that I will be having a Textile Gallery myself at The Spring Knitting and Stitching show.  It is on from 38th February to 3rd of March 2019, so if you can get to London, come say hi.

I wont be releasing much about my work, but the gallery itself is a documentation on symbolic mending and its connections with life….

What is repair? Find out more in February at The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show

That’s all for now!
