Welcome to NeedleXChange, conversations on the art of thread. It’s our podcast in which Jamie “Mr X Stitch” Chalmers* talks with needlework and textile artists about their practice and process.
Our second episode is with Dr. Jack Roberts, aka JPR Stitch, whose abstract machine embroideries are as considered and well-thought out as they are beautiful.
We discuss the joys of making art in his garden, how Jack learned about the art context so he could make his work with freedom, and his multi-media approach to making.
If you like the show, it would be great if you can spread the word! Thanks!
Don’t forget our other episodes of NeedleXChange, which you find here!
*talking about himself in the third person again!
