I am pleased to announce the launch of NeedleXChange – conversations on the Art of Thread. It’s a regular podcast in which I chat with needlework and textile artists about their creative practice and process.
The first episode is with Cath Janes, the artist formerly known as Kraken Kreations.
We talk about her transition to being an artist, the challenge of imposter syndrome, the beauty of anatomy, how she makes her art and much more.
You can watch the interview on YouTube here, where you’ll enjoy closeups of Cath’s work.
You can listen to the show right here:
You can find out more about the show at the NeedleXChange website.
Cath’s work is truly remarkable. Her use of simple stitching to recreate anatomical body parts is unmatched, and in our chat we explore how she uses this creative practice to understand the mechanics of her own body.
We also talk about the effects of going viral on Instagram, which isn’t always the golden chalice that you might expect.
I hope you enjoy the show. It would be amazing if you could leave a review because it’s crucial to spreading the word about the show.
If this is the first time you’ve discovered Cath’s work, you are in for a treat.
