With Sue Stone

$15 - Doors open at 7:30

Sue Stone is a British artist who is best known for her figurative compositions that are both constructed textiles and poignant illustrations. Her work often features a fish, a symbol of her heritage (she is the daughter of a Grimsby fish merchant and a seamstress/tailor). Sue is a storyteller whose compositions combine multiple images of people, places, and times, alluding to a journey through life.

Join Sue Stone as she talks about her life, art, and creative journey. Her most recent work emphasizes hand embroidery, often combined with machine-stitch and painting to create a personal examination of memory, self, and identity. 

Sue returned to embroidery after a long career in clothing design and manufacture. Since 2006 her work has appeared worldwide in many magazines and books and has also been widely exhibited throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Pakistan, and Japan. Sue is the current Chair and an exhibiting member of the internationally renowned 62 Group of Textile Artists and a Fellow of the UK Society of Designer Craftsmen.

Sue will also teach two workshops.
