hand-Stitched Stories: a new art exhibition at Stapleford Granary, Cambridge
There will be two launch events taking place for hand-Stitched Stories, an exhibition of work by textile artist Sabine Kaner, at Stapleford Granary on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23.
Sabine is a textile artist based in South West England. She grew up in London in the 1960s and 1970s in a mixed-race family, her mother being German and her father – a member of the Windrush Generation – hailing from Jamaica.
Sabine started out in print while studying at Central Saint Martins and the University of Manchester. In her twenties she began using textiles, specifically quilt of craft, as her main art medium - and her quilts are also autobiographical.
The exhibition runs from October 22 to January 21, 2022. Artist talks with Sabine Kaner and Stapleford Granary CEO Kate Romano are at 8pm on October 22 and 11am on October 23. Along with the preview talks, a catalogue essay by Kate Romano accompanies the exhibition.
