For this project we worked in groups of three and created shared pieces of work on the theme of Hospitality. I had not worked like this before; it was both exciting and initially intimidating.
Each month our group of three met up at a café to swap the pieces over and it was like unwrapping Christmas presents. We shared thoughts and ideas and got to know each other over tea and cake. As the project progressed new ways of working emerged, boundaries were stretched and work went off in amazing directions. The whole was greater than the sum of its parts.
Here are some glimpses of one of the textiles we produced. Over 20 textile artists from Merseyside and abroad worked together and the results will be seen at our Liverpool Biennial Exhibition at Baltic Creative.
