This month we took part in the Slow Textiles Geometrics Pop Up from 28th June to 19th July, which took place alongside an exhibition of Slow Textiles members work at the SLOWstudio in Kingsgate Road, London, NW6.
We met some wonderful people whose work and interests somehow overlapped with ours, including founder of Slow Textiles Emma Neuberg. We also met tapestry artist Tina Francis, Zoe Burt of Seeds of Fashion who is running a project to grow flax in allotments across London to make into linen for clothing and painter June Mendez whose wonderful monochrome geometric print from the 1960’s is featured below. Her late husband painter Theo Mendez was head of the Textile Department at Camberwell College from 1976-1984 and two of his painting are also pictured below. It was great to meet everyone and share thoughts.
