The Mill Project at The Knitting and Stitching Fair 2013

Jean McKennaKnitting and Stitching at the RDS Dublin from 31st October – 3rd November 2013

Filament Fibre Artists continue with their diverse and exciting work based on Bolands Mill in Co. Kilkenny. Last year, at the Knitting and Stitching Show they showed work in progress from the beginning of the project. Now we are seeing the progression of their work. Time and nature have impacted on this imposing structure and each one of the eight members of Filament is drawn to different aspects of the Mill and its impressive mechanical workings. Themes of preservation and maintenance run through the work, which is strongly influenced by the people who worked in the mill in the past and the evidence of that work which is left behind in the structure. Using both traditional and innovative techniques the group explore the impact of the physical building and its surroundings, and also investigate the history of this old building and the past generations who worked and lived in the area, each member producing vibrant new work that owes much to the group dynamic yet is entirely her own.

Filament Fibre Artists are at stand number TG30 in the Textile Gallery please come along and view this new and exciting body of work and speak to the artists on the stand. Also on show will be work from recent NCAD graduates Siofra Bourke & David O’Malley.
