The ‘London Threads’ show is a collection of exciting new textile art by members of the Carousel group, each of whom has taken inspiration from experiences that connect them to the capital. The result is a gloriously varied and colourful show. You will find pieces by an artist who concocts carnival floats for a living and another who is making an academic study of the art and craft behind material we sit on in the Tube.

Work includes intricate stitchery, screen-printed images, hand-weaving, dyeing, patchwork, fabric manipulation, and a wealth of materials, luxurious and unconventional.
