Traverse is a group of textile artists, working with varied styles, mediums and techniques; our name comes from the way we like to approach a theme – moving or looking sideways, seeking different perspectives. Within mixed media, we each have our favourites, including working with paper, metal, hand-dyed fabric, felt, 3D and fashion, using heat, print, paint, and stitch. An important part of our ethos is to celebrate our diversity, share our various strengths and to grow together.
‘Revealed’, our 2019 exhibition, explores several approaches to the idea of what is seen or unseen, using unconventional viewpoints, revealing various hidden layers – in the physical world, in our emotional landscapes and also within our work itself.
We will be demonstrating some of the ways we work during the show – in particular, our use of an embellisher.

Our group members have a wide and varied range of textile skills and knowledge.

The workshops are usually held on the third Saturday of the month at North Kilworth Memorial Hall, Leicestershire.
We have no membership fee as chosen workshops are on a pay as you go basis.
The TEXTEND group is currently full.

With a passion for Feltmaking and Textile Art I work with a variety of mediums and techniques to create unique, hand crafted items in both 2D and three dimensional forms. My work is often inspired by nature, from the dramatic coast and countryside of the Scottish Highlands to small found objects collected while out walking in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
I am currently running craft workshops, both locally and nationally, teaching the skills I’ve learnt and motivating others to unleash their creativity.
