The Brunel Broderers are a group of artists based in the South West of England who work in a variety of textile media and methodologies.
The group has built up a following within the textile world in challenging expectations of a medium traditionally called 'embroidery'.
Today their work defies a neat title encompassing as it does a diverse range of approaches, methods and materials to create a series of ideas for thematic schemes and exhibitions.
First Touch of Spring - This piece is going into the Guild Gallery in Cheltenham tomorrow. It is about this time of year when buds and blossom begin to appear but there are still frosty mornings as Winter leads into Spring. ( 44cm x 25cm framed) The Guild at 51, tel 01242 245215.
What do artists do all day? A great series on BBC4. It took me all day Wednesday to embroider 3 primroses! ( The flowers are hand stitched and the leaves are machine embroidered. )
