Knitting & Stitching Show 2012

02 Textiles was invited to exhibit at the 2012 Knitting and Stitching Show in London, Dublin and Harrogate. This is the definitive and best exhibition for lovers of textiles in the UK and Ireland.
OTT's stands are: London (TGQ8), Dublin (TGD25) and Harrogate (TG222).

This Autumn sees OTT's first appearance at the show with its exhibition "Curiouser and curiouser ... and curiouser". The exhibition aims to amuse, surprise and intrigue the visitor. Inspiration comes mainly from art and literature, with a dip into the surreal.

As is usual at its exhibitions, 02 Textiles' show also features a joint project which highlights each member of the group's different approach to, and understanding of, a common subject. "Curiouser and curiouser ... and curiouser" features "Shelf Life" as its communal project.

"Shelf Life" consists of a set of shelves on which sits or stands an array of creatures, plants and objects, the likes of which have never been seen before. A diverse range of materials is employed in the making, including silks, cottons, card, metals, papier mache, wire, threads, feathers, beads, and especially, recycled objects.

Prepare to be enchanted by the work in the show ... After all, the partcipants have only a limited "shelf life".
