Artist Talks, with the Bluecoat Display Centre
April 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm£15
Textile Artist & Illustrator — Rachael Howard.
Tuesday 30 April, 1:00 for 1:30pm, £15.00 per person
Textile artist & illustrator Rachael Howard will speak about her artistic career. Rachael first spoke at the Athenaeum in 2014 about her practice, she now returns to show how her career has developed. In particular Rachael has worked as artist in residence at Royal Liverpool University Hospital as part of Bluecoat Display Centre’s outreach programme, teaching drawing to those living with dementia. This had a significant effect on the patients as they learned a new skill, grew in confidence and became more relaxed. This was also a valuable experience for Rachael, as this was her first time working in the hospital environment.
Rachael is one of the most respected practitioners of narrative textiles. She has pioneered a lively mix of embroidery and screen-printing techniques, using image, text and object to tell stories of the everyday.
