City Lit Advanced Textiles Group Final Show

Story added 8th Dec 2020

Espacio Gallery hosts the City Lit Advanced Textiles Group Final Show, 8-13 December 2020. 

For two years the students studying on the Advanced Textiles course at City Lit have experimented with techniques and materials to develop personal projects that demonstrate the amazing things that can be achieved with textiles and stitch.  

Because of Covid-19 the final show had to be postponed from July, and lockdown gave the group plenty of extra time develop their work. The final show includes thought-provoking narrative, personal stories, subversive messages, myths and fairy tales, alongside abstract work that pushes traditional fabric manipulation and dyeing techniques to a new level.  

The show is open: Tuesday 8 December to Sunday 13 December

Tuesday to Saturday 12am – 7pm, Sunday 11am – 4pm

Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London E2 7DG  

Tube: Liverpool Street, Bethnal Green; Overground: Shoreditch High Street; Buses: 8, 388
