‘Z-Twist, Exhibition of contemporary textiles created on the Z-Twist Residency’ will showcase work from Debbie Smyth, Penny Wheeler and Lucy Lean
Z–Twist is a new and exciting Arts Council funded programme for Somerset Art Works (SAW) and Stroud International Textiles (SIT). Z – Twist has brought together artists, designers, textile producers, educators and curators to raise the profile of high quality textiles in Somerset and the south west – past, present and future.
Z-Twist has placed three contemporary designer/makers; Lucy Lean, Penny Wheeler and Debbie Smyth in traditional textile industries and education settings over a period of three months to enable them to develop a new body of work with support from textile manufacturers, local heritage collections, Somerset College equipment and Stroud International Textiles (SIT). This exhibition will show the results of the residencies. It promises to be inspiring and a fascinating insight from three highly skilled artists who have explored and researched to create this final body of work. PRESENTED by Somerset Art Works in partnership with Select festival/Stroud International Textiles.
