Free Lecture. Susan Purney Mark writes, “In April 2019 I was privileged to attend a month-long textile focused residency at the Icelandic Textile Centre in Blondúös, Iceland. This land of “fire and ice” was an inspiring locale to explore my concept of “textile book forms” a purposely loose term that embraced both implied text and language in stitch and print with dimensional shapes that resemble books as constructions.

I use “found” textiles in my work – from thrift shops or friends which are already imbued with a memory ….maybe the linen tablecloth that dressed the dinner table at every Sunday dinner? Or perhaps grandpa’s favourite old cotton shirt? With each textile I wish to honour the story hidden in the threads while adding another layer of my own narrative.
