Please join us for our August Book Club Meeting! We’ll be discussing Unravelling Women’s Art: Creators, Rebels, & Innovators in Textile Arts by P. L. Henderson 

P. L. Henderson unpicks the threads that link female textile artists and the arts they produce, revealing a global and historic patchwork of assorted roles, identities, and representations. Entertaining as well as informative, this book offers a unique overview of female-centric textile art production including embroidery, weaving, soft sculpture and more. The book includes over 20 interviews with contemporary textile artists, providing fascinating insights into their practices, themes, and personal motivation. Learn how knitting became a spying device in wartime, why dress design was so important for the Suffragettes, why spiders were emblems in ancient times and now, and how women’s arts and crafts moved from the backroom to the gallery showroom.
