Meaningful Textiles

Set 1: Creation and the Environment

Set 2: Peace and Reconciliation

“Inspirational – what a lovely diverse, meaningful exhibition, very impressive; quite outstanding and innovative”

Our Meaningful Textiles collection, by Pamela Pavitt, is divided into two sets of embroideries. The first set is titled ‘Creation and the Environment’ and the second ‘Peace and Reconciliation.

These stunning collections of art attract viewers because of the beauty and intricacy of the designs, and the themes have been instrumental in facilitating communities in local projects, enabling reflections and conversations about the present and the past, and inspiring action for the future. The themes and art form lend themselves to events, symbolic responses, and community art, and if you wish to engage this way we can provide ideas for this.

Both groups of embroideries comprise 19 frames, with 30 textiles on the Creation and Environment theme and 26 textiles on the Peace and Reconciliation theme. These textiles may be used as a whole collection or just a selection of the frames.

Each frame is provided in a custom-made canvas bag and the exhibition will fit in most standard cars for transport. Each frame is wall mountable with both long and short cords, and mirror plates, so you can choose how you wish to hang them. They could also be mounted on easels or tables, which are not provided.
