Award winning Nancy Mitchinson, with work inspired by the graphic beading of Masai warrior traditional dress. Joining her is Aimi Mackay whose work promises to be 'a rejuvenation of the traditional image of knitwear' through the illusion of visual and tactile perceptions.

16-17th July

Indian born Sushmitha Ilango uses 'khadi' (a traditional hand woven fabric) to explore contrasts between modern and traditional techniques. Also from India, Neha Pawar, who has a background as a commercial artist, will show work that is a culmination of research into traditional motifs and the seemingly unending possibility of pattern within textiles.

Collections by Achimar Nirunpornputta, who describes herself as a 'day dreamer with a Peter Pan syndrome' and Flaviyake (Flaviya Kaklyugina) who believes that 'clothes should create a mood.'
