Group Exhibition Statement

How Does Your Garden Grow?


Threadmill was formed in 1995 by a group of like-minded artists in the North West of England.  We all share an enthusiasm for creativity whilst using textiles and threads as our principal means of artistic expression.

Working in a group we provide support to the individual allowing each artist to develop a strong personal focus within their own textile practice. We meet regularly to exchange ideas, set targets and explore new avenues. To create a group identity we work to a theme for each exhibition this ensures that the work has a common link while allowing individuals to express themselves freely.

The theme for this exhibition is How Does Your Garden Grow. We have explored the beauty of natural forms throughout the seasons and interpreted them in a diverse range of styles and techniques.

We are committed to the promotion of textiles as both a decorative and expressive art form and hope to increase awareness and education through our exhibitions and workshops
