Steyning So and Sews – Wilton Park Momento’s
At Shoreham Gallery - 15th to 29th October

The ‘Steyning So and Sews’ (a local community textile group), meet once a month at Steyning Grammar School. Our purpose is to work collaboratively on creative and experimental textile projects which respond to local community commissions, cultural events and arts festivals. In the past 7 years we have been funded and supported by the Heritage Lottery fund, Wilton Park and Steyning Grammar School.

We are thrilled to have been asked by Shoreham Gallery to show a bespoke selection of our current work and this exhibition shows individual responses and momento’s from our last project (Wilton Park Textile). Group members have re-purposed hand dyed, printed and painted fabric and used the project embroidery threads to make our personal samplers which conjur our local landscape. On this occasion we have made our own pieces that reflect our memories of the project. We were immersed in the history of Wilton Park (located in Wiston House and Estate) and exploring new textile techniques to suit the theme. We have had time to reflect and re-interpret our memories in personal and individual ways. Through this process we have rediscovered earlier experiments and revisited the project colour palette. This collection is almost a homage to the tradition of ‘samplers’. Group members have learned to loosen up and push some boundaries in their making methods. These landscapes symbolise our feelings for the Wilton Park Textile and the South Downs, the area we are privileged to call our home.
