Liz Holliday

Tonight's talk was on samplers, but not as we know it. Liz's talk was entitled 'A Visual Inheritance', and was very informative. She bought along her work to show the textile journey she has taken, merging traditional sampler patterns and techniques with contemporary. The piece de resistance was this sampler book depicting her family history-off now to be exhibited (don't know where, sorry).

I liked the way she displayed her sequin samples (C&G work), they all lifted up to reveal underneath, how each sample was made.
