Meaningful Embroideries:
Let the needle do the talking

Our Project:

Pamela Pavitt trained at the art school in Bromley and taught textiles in London before returning to Bromley Art School as a member of staff.

Subsequently she was a tutor in Croydon for ten years running City and Guilds embroidery courses. Pamela is a member of the Embroiders' Guild and the South London Textile Workshop which experiments with tapestry weaving and other techniques.

Her work has been shown in Churches and Cathedrals and is familiar through reproduction in such publications as "Leaves from the Tree of Peace", "Threads of Creation" and "What a World". Pamela is an Elder of the United Reformed Church.

Throughout Pamela has been a firm advocate of letting the "Needle do the Talking" and letting "Meaningful Embroideries encourage thought and response from others".

Meaningful textiles are presented in two groups one dealing with ideas of peace and reconcilliation, and the other the stewardship of the world we live in, creation and the environment.

Peace and Reconciliation (18 frames - 25 textiles) and Creation and the Environment (20 frames - 31 textiles) may be loaned either as distinct groupings, or as a combined exhibition. It is also possible to customise your own exhibition by combining a selection of embroideries from both groups. There are brief titles to each embroidery, and visitors are encouraged to make their own interpretations.
