Meet Michele Carragher at the Knitting and Stitching show on the 8th of October.

Rich in symbolism and drawing inspiration from throughout history, the book contains three created, embroidered artefacts: a lavish glove, jewelled bodice and Japanese-style hairpin. From these she extracts a narrative which becomes the basis for three embroidered artworks, exploring the theme of duality.

The books begins with an immersive, exquisitely photographed gallery tour of all the pieces, showcasing Michele’s work in incredible detail.  Following on from this, each artefact and artwork is discussed in detail, giving insight into the working process, creative choices and techniques used.
