British Textile Biennial

Posted on: September 18th, 2019 by daksha.patel No Comments

It’s the final stage of making new work for the upcoming British Textile Biennial, at Queen St Mill, Burley, which opens on October 3rd. I am drawing with coloured threads upon cotton fabric, which has been printed with images of female workers in textile/garment factories across China, Thailand, India and Bali (see below). And looking forward to installing another new work – gold thread woven intricately around a very large loom which was used for producing gold braid. Watch out for installation pics of that in upcoming weeks!
