Cork Textiles Network

Knitting and Stitching Show 2018 (part 1)

Working title: ‘Selfie’

Autumn 2018 CTN will exhibit in all 3 Knitting and Stitching Shows

London Dublin Harrowgate

The K&S organisers have allocated CTN a stand of a generous size with external wall space. This will facilitate a double exhibition.

‘Selfie’ is Part 1 of this project to be hung on the exterior of the exhibition stand. This is our chance to show who we are as members of the CTN and what our members are capable of. CTN aim to include a piece from every member to create a stunning visual impact. This is going to be a huge opportunity for all members to have work exhibited on such a scale so it is important we present our ‘best face’.

Brief:

‘Selfie’ – self-portrait. This can be as illustrative or abstract as your wish but it must reflect you.

Criteria:

  • A self-portrait in your chosen medium
  • Pieces to be produced directly onto or mounted onto a slim canvas available from Lesley Stothers at a cost of just €2.
  • Pieces to hang in portrait format only.
  • Please no trailing threads or excessively protruding profiles.
  • No submission or hanging fee.
