Rosemary Campbell | Textile Study Group | BA FMP Research | Scoop.it
Rebecca Woodworth's insight:

I love the painterly effect that Rosemary Campbell can create using layering and stitch, this really appeals to me because it is not obviously 'textile'. She says her work is personal in nature, she taps into family history and recently her work reflected time spent in Shetland.  She mentions her way of working which is interesting if not slightly unconventional.  She works with colours, textures aad images and collates these ideas in a sketchbook, but she does tend to work intuitively with her stitched drawings.

Hannah Lamb: Preparations

Hannah Lamb: Preparations | BA FMP Research | Scoop.it
Rebecca Woodworth's insight:

Hannah Lamb explores ideas about place, woodland, mapping.  I find her work gentle but thought provoking.  I am in interested in this particular piece of work because she has created backgrounds for her work in the place she is creating work about. Plus I do have a secret love of Cyanotype!

Caren Garfen interview: The need to spread my wings - TextileArtist.org

Caren Garfen interview: The need to spread my wings - TextileArtist.org | BA FMP Research | Scoop.it
Prior to becoming a contemporary textile artist, Caren worked hand stitching traditional samplers for dolls houses. She now specialises in fine textile art.
Rebecca Woodworth's insight:

Caren Garfen creates textile work inspired by issues that affect women today and is interested in tyhe way women have lived in the past compared to now.  She says once she has decided on her topic she researches it leaving no stone unturned.  I think her work then follows a pattern ie tile, planning, drawing, pattern, print, stitch and construction.

Unfortunately I don't work best when working in such a structured way, an organic approach is usually best for me.  However I can see that a certain amount of planning is important when your artwork contains print and stitch.

Anita Hutchison - edge - textile artists scotland - gallery - | BA FMP Research | Scoop.it
Rebecca Woodworth's insight:

After caring for a relative with dementia Anita observed how her relative became more animated when knitting.  Anita now focuses on communicating memories and thoughts and incorporates found objects into her textile work which acts as a metaphor for information, thoughts and memories.

Relates to my ideas of memories of Blackburn, intending to evoke fond memories in the older generation in Blackburn.  I had been thinking of using images/print but it is possible that after interviewing people other objects could be used in the final pieces if they serve a purpose.

The website of Katherine Jones. Katherine Jones's work follows today's sensitivity towards issues of protection and security using a recurring house shape, subverted structurally and contextually to simultaneously imply nurture, protection,...
Rebecca Woodworth's insight:

like the simplicity of some of the techniques Katherine Jones uses.  On this particular image the colours and imagery are dreamy and thought provoking.
