Anne Kelly - UK

Moving Memories

Travel, memory and collections remind us of places we have been or would like  to visit. Make a personal and meaningful repository for a special place (actual or imagined) of your choice. Working from techniques explored in her new book ‘Textile Folk Art’, Anne will be using printing, fabric collage, fabric and paper lamination, hand and machine stitching. You will be aiming to complete a larger 3D and a smaller folding piece during the workshop. Looking through your collections, selecting old and new pieces of fabric, ephemera and decorative paper to use for your piece.

About Anne Kelly

Anne’s background in Canada and her project work have been rooted in the natural world and influenced by folk and naïve art. In her current practice, she explores the influences of this art form and historical style on her contemporary pieces, using her signature collage techniques. Many of the featured works will be shown in her forthcoming book ‘Textile Folk Art’, publishing in 2018.

Anne is the co-author
of ‘Connected Cloth’ and her most recent book ‘Textile Nature’ was launched at the Knitting and Stitching Shows in the UK in 2016. She teaches and exhibits nationally and internationally. Her work is represented in public and private collections in the UK and abroad. She is on the UK Crafts Council’s register of makers.
