Janice Gunner Solo Exhibition: Beyond Blue

Cowslip Workshops. Launceston, Cornwall

3rd - 9th September

Beyond Blue premieres at Cowslip Workshops. In this new, solo exhibition of work, Janice draws inspiration from the natural world, Africa and Japan using indigo dye and Shibori techniques on natural fabrics. Together with some signature techniques (arashi – pole wrapped shibori) Janice makes work that includes other colours into the indigo palette to complement the wonderful blues achieved when using this dye, known as “The King of Colours”. Janice will use fabrics from other countries to complement her own hand dyes and some pieces of work will be exclusively using fabrics from Africa and Japan.

Included in this exhibition is will also be the work Janice made for the MA Textiles she studied for at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. Janice’s work explores the effect a diagnosis of a progressive neurological disorder has on a relationship and is called Touching Absence,

A series of workshops featuring Indigo will be taking place at Cowslip Workshops throughout the exhibit
