Make Us Proud

In the latest issue of Embroidery Magazine, Jo Hall previews Collect Open 2018

Fast establishing itself as an  important feature, Collect Open supports innovative craft, championing concept-driven objects and exploratory installations. Twelve makers have been selected to take part, five of whom represent textiles, among them Emily Jo Gibbs, whose recent practice has focused on stitched portraits, a subject she’s expanded further in a fresh series of seven embroidered portraits of contemporary craft makers depicted through the tools they use.
