I had a wonderful day just recently at The Hepworth Wakefield with the even more wonderful Carrie Scott-Huby. These are just some of the amazing exhibits that are on at the moment. I have not included the Barbara Hepworth pieces as they need a posting of their own. Enjoy and have a look at the video at the end.

Laura Slater is a multidisciplinary textile designer working across printed, constructed and embroidered textiles for textile solutions for the body or space (fashion or interiors). She has been developing her practice since completing her MA in Mixed Media Textiles at The Royal College of Art.
Her work is about the use of the hand created specifically through drawing concepts and colour into the making process.
She embrace the use of traditional textile techniques and her work aims to challenge the reinvention and reinterpretation of their presence within contemporary design and bespoke outcomes.
This design collection evolved from the development of exploring the use of architectural qualities of line and linear drawing concepts and the interaction of colour and pattern.
Working with a selected colourway and the idea of evolving random linear compositions through folding development, I felt as though this collection has lent itself to bespoke handtufting rug design applications.
