Hawthorne & Heaney for Carne Griffiths, Embroidery in Art

Once again, Hawthorne & Heaney has had the pleasure of working with the artist Carne Griffiths on some of his new pieces in preparation for his upcoming solo exhibition. ¬†Griffiths’s addition of embroidery suit his drawing style and use of colour very well as the stitches are absorbed into the piece and are accepted as another stroke or mark. The use of the embroidery draws on Griffith’s own history as a gold wire draftsman which is demonstrated in his subtle and considered choice of stitch.

A range of Griffiths’ work will be on display at the Ink’d gallery in Brighton for his solo exhibition called ‘Origins’ from the 6th September to 5th October 2014. This follows his previous successful exhibition with them back in 2012 and will feature some of the hand embroidered pieces along with a range from his collection.

The workshop will be held in the Ink’d Gallery on the 27th September, 11-3, places are limited so don’t delay if you want a place!
