Exhibitions & Symposium: Z- Twist

final Pink cabbage exhibition postcardLOW RESZ–Twist is a new Arts Council funded programme for Somerset Art Works (SAW) and Stroud International Textiles (SIT). Z – Twist has brought together artists, designers, textile producers, educators and curators to raise the profile of high quality textiles in Somerset and the south west – past, present and future.

Since January 2014 three contemporary designer/makers; Lucy Lean, Penny Wheeler and Debbie Smyth have been undertaking a residency to enable them to develop a new body of work with support from textile manufacturers; John Boyd Textiles, Fox Brothers & Co Ltd and WSP Textiles, local heritage collections with resident hosts Somerset College and Stroud International Textiles (SIT).

There are two opportunities to see the results of the residencies, which promises to be inspiring and a fascinating insight from three highly skilled artists who have explored and researched to create a final body of work.
