This exhibition of textiles and mixed media work has been created by the ISE textile group of fifteen artists.  ISE (Inspiration for Stitch and Expression) has a wonderful new exhibition on show now in the Gallery.  This group explores the rich diversity of textile and stitching, producing unique hand and machine stitched or felted art inspired by both the natural world and the built envionrment.  The group was formed several years ago, by like-minded artists who enjoy creating diverse work with stitch as the common thread.

Wendy Bates, Anne Clayton, Wendy Davies, Sandra Jenkins, Sheila Jones, Karin Kirk, Sue Latimer, Judith Laundon, Dora Mack, Mary Martin, Jean Paling, Alison Ranson, Alyssa Robinson, Jane Stock and Val Taylor meet regularly in Welford, Northamptonshire. Our aim is to promote creativity with rigorous discipline, underpinned by knowledge of textiles worldwide.

On display are abstract, realistic and figurative art and fashion accessories using a wide variety of media: wire, paper, fabric (new, distressed and recycled) and found objects: these are hand and machine stitched, or felted to create art inspired by both the natural world and the built environment.
