Finders Keepers Tales in Textiles! exhibition by Connie Flynn
In June 2015 Connie was the Artist in Residence at Sumburgh Lighthouse Shetland, during the residency she researched the social history aspect of the keepers and their families who stayed, worked and lived at the lighthouse. Connie recorded these experiences in her sketchbook, this then developed by using cloth to construct textile wall hangings, each one decorated with different surface effects and hand stitched techniques.
Finders Keepers Tales in Textiles! has been shown in Harwich Lighthouse (Aug 2017), Three Hares Gallery in Buckinghamshire (Feb 2017), Rayleigh Windmill, Essex (Sept/Oct 2016) and Shetland Museum (April 2016).
