The theme of this years events focuses on the global context of textiles, textile production and the relationships it creates both historically and now.
Members of the 62 Group have created new artworks that investigate this
theme from a wide range of viewpoints and divergent textile media. Several of the artists have focussed on the speciﬁc relationship that Lancashire has with global textile industries.
While the heritage of textile production in Lancashire provides a rich starting point, other artists have investigated more personal histories relating to their own locale or wider political contexts resulting from the impact of textiles on people & place.
The artworks for this exhibition have been selected by a panel including Jenny Rutter, Director at Super Slow Way and the British Textile Biennial, and Deirdre Figueiredo MBE, Director of Craftspace.
