Stand AIA in the Textile Gallery (Hall M)

The ARTISTS IN ACTION Studio has become a regular feature at the Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate but this year it promises to be better than ever as it has now been given a major position within the Textile Gallery.

Many artists have appeared in the Studio over the years, and many of those have taken part in several years' events. The concept is to show practising artists at work, as though in their own studio, so visitors can catch a glimpse of the artists’ journey from initial idea through to resolved body of work. 

Each artist is given their own ‘studio space’ to display work-in-progress as well as finished pieces and the timetable reflects a range of creative disciplines such as fabric painting, dyeing, printing, fabric construction, mixed-media and stitch. The artists, who may be in residence for one or more days, will be examining options, exploring ideas and working through processes. Inspiration could come from previously worked themes, from their own sketchbooks and source material, or even from other artists in the Studio and the materials provided.

Programme in several visits to the Artists in Action Studio during your day and you will be able to observe the developments, as well as learning about methods, materials and techniques. By displaying their personal working methods the artists hope to encourage a better understanding of the artistic flow, including those inevitable (but vitally important) rejected ideas, as the creative journey follows its twists and turns.
