Guest Speaker: Julia Triston - Intimacy and Identity
Julia Triston is a professional artist, maker, educator and author in stitched textiles, and contemporary art and design techniques. She is fascinated with the journey textiles take and intrigued by the wear and tear of her raw materials, and the memories they hold. Her raw materials include vintage lace, reclaimed household linen, discarded embroideries, second-hand clothing and previously worn underwear. She is interested in detail, and combines fastenings and straps with raw edges and seams to become features in her pieces. Julia teaches and exhibits internationally and is an active member of the Textile Study Group. She also runs StitchBusiness, an independent, international stitch school. Julia is also co-author of two popular Batsford titles: How to be Creative in Textile Art and Contemporary Appliqué.
