Carousel Textile Artists – London Threads
A Barbican Library Foyer Exhibition
Textile art group Carousel explore their London stories in colourful textile art.
Carousel is a group of textile artists who met at a London college. For the ‘London Threads’ exhibition Carousel’s members challenged themselves to think beyond the surface and using a firm foundation in textile technique each artist has developed an individual theme. Inspirations include a court dressmaker, designs for train fabrics, hidden rivers, London skyline, pavements and textile and clothing history. Techniques used include printing, dyeing, weaving, knitting, shibori, machine and hand embroidery. Colour plays a large part in the work and the interplay of colour and texture informs the finished pieces.
The Barbican Libraries are located on Level 2 within the Barbican. They can be accessed from the main building via stairs or lifts from Level G or via Frobisher Crescent from the highwalks.
