Painting with Thread: Reimagining Hand Embroidery

On exhibit September 26 to December 20, 2020 (exhibit now closed)

Imagine a world beyond the hoop! Hand embroidery is an art form stitchers across the world adore, including our artist in residence, Sarah Godfrey. Sarah's greatest passion is exploring what lies beyond the traditional hoop. While she enjoys creating beautiful wall hangings, her work experiments with different fabric choices and functional pieces like upcycling clothing. Come and get inspired! 

Schneider Haus Artist-in-Residence Sarah Godfrey explores embroidery as a marriage of illustration and fibre art. This exhibit demonstrates her love of nature, colour and whimsy in a collection of hoop art pieces, upcycled garments and paintings/drawings. 

Sarah provides a window into the artist’s process through videos of her technique.  The tools and family history that have led Sarah to become immersed in the worlds of hand embroidery and illustration will be showcased.
