Featuring video performances and works by international artists from around the world such as Sweden, Germany, France, United States and the UK, Contextiles-isation combines two strands of artistic practice rarely intertwined; performance and textiles.

Contextiles-isation is sponsored by Pilot Beer and OceanTerminal and will run until 31st August.

Working on a new project, exploring the structures or quilt patterns.

Quilting is something I grow up around, (I made my first when I was 8, with alot of help! It had pokemon on it) more and more I’m realising the impact these patterns have had on the way I design.
