Cath Stonard is a textiles artist, who specialises in exploring and experimenting with cloth, paper, stitch, paint and with as many new techniques as possible. For 23 years, Cath worked in the Art Department of a local school, keeping her up to date and informed with the wider world of art, and over the years both this and her love of stitch have come together to create the pieces she now makes.
Throughout her work she explores the natural world from birds to butterflies and the seashore, and from this produces abstract textiles and journal quilts. Cath has been working with pupils from Eastbourne Schools Partnership to create textiles using the beach as the inspiration to produce textiles postcards, these will be displayed in a viewing at the Birley Centre on Monday 17 June from 6.00pm.
Pictures of the two day event can be found on this website in the gallery.
