A massive thank you, first of all, to everyone who came to the inaugural meeting of the Coventry Music Network – it was fantastic to see so many people there. Missed it? Fear not! The next one will be held on Friday 26th September at 7.00pm in the Community Space.
Stewart Easton is a midlands based artist currently working in hand embroidery and digital print on fabric. His work is focused on stitch and narrative using authorial illustration to create large scale embroidered panels.
Using folk song and story as a starting point Easton weaves story-based narratives, utilising the space of a single panel to explore time, movement and transition within his tapestry based works.
He is currently making use of a hybrid technique mixing digital print with hand embroidery exploring both modern and traditional methods of creating, enabling his work to straddle the lines between Craft, Illustration and Fine Art.
Stewart joins us in our new artist space which will host two artists and a silkscreen print press.
