Hand stitched stories with Sabine Kaner
Sabine Kaner uses a variety of textile-based mixed media techniques. The focus of the work centres around socio-political issues, both past and present.
The process of making is hand stitching, which is enhanced by a variety of materials and mediums. This includes but is not restricted to applique, boiled wool, felt, glass, paint and print making. A main feature of the work is the use of repurposed clothing, with some garments being used that have personal and autobiographical connections which are integral to the stories that she is portraying.
Metaphor and symbolism play a large part in the work and can be seen in the use of colour, as well as the shape and composition of the chosen stitched components.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 28th June through to and including Sunday 6th August 2023. Opening times are 10-4pm Wednesdays through Sundays. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays and occasionally for other events in the main hall – we recommend you call first if travelling a distance to avoid disappointment.
