This event provided a rare opportunity to gain a unique insight into the personal histories of two of the most significant contemporary textile artists in the UK. Twenty members were privileged to hear Anne Morrell and Polly Binns discuss the development of their practice that has resulted in the ambitious touring exhibition Light and Line currently showing at Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery. This major body of works has been four years in the making, and is the culmination of two creative journeys that have made an extensive contribution to textiles - through education, research and practice. This was not only a celebration of two eminent artists, but also a demonstration of their constant searching and material investigation, through observation, reflection and interpretation in cloth – a practice that continues to change and evolve.
