Textile artist Alice Kettle returns to Winchester Discovery Centre with a solo exhibition marking the 10 year anniversary of her stunning public artwork ‘Looking Forwards to the Past, 2007’. This immense, multi-layered piece, dense in surface quality and washed in colour and light, caused a fundamental shift in practice for the artist. Our mini retrospective celebrates her journey in hand, machine and digital stitch, and launches the first of a major new series of works planned for exhibition in Manchester, 2018. Sea is the first in an ambitious series of works forming Thread Bearing Witness.
