Guest Artist at Knitting and Stitching

Artists have always re-cycled and re-used materials and recently, given the current financial climate, the practice has become even more popular. Cas Holmes, renowned for her use of found materials, will be guest artist at the Festival of Quilts, NEC Birmingham, August 16-19 and the Knitting and Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace October 11-14 2012.

The Found Object in Textile Art

I have just written my first book, appropriate for recessionary times. I am also exhibiting at 'Natural Histories'.

The Found Object in Textile Art.

Textile artists have always used found objects and recently, given the current financial and social climate, the practice has become even more popular.

Mundane objects such as CD cases can be used to create stunning pieces of art, teabags have been used to create large installations, biscuits used for printing and old paper transformed into ballet shoes.
