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.

Working with what Cas describes as 'stitch sketching' in Urban/Nature her atmospheric textile pieces meticulously re-use salvaged materials which include items as diverse as teabags, sweet wrappers and even old handkerchiefs. Her work is held in public collections including the Museum of Art and Design, New York, Arts Council England and The Edward James Foundation.
