I feel sad and confused and fucked off.” “What does it mean?” Flynn turns to gaze at me, eyes finally meeting mine. Brother AE1700 Manual Stitch Sewing Machine - White.

Once you start screen printing your original designs you won't want to stop. H., 1960, Art and Illusion: A study in the Psychology of Pictorial Representation. 37 Gilman, C., P., 1892, ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, reproduced in Harper, C., (ed) Textiles. These are all shops from our traditional high streets and will hopefully bring nostalgic memories to many people. Nicola Henley says she used to be proud to say ‘I’m a textile artist, an embroiderer … but the response has so often been derogatory in the sense of belittling, of it being woman’s work.’ When people hear the words textile art or embroidery they ‘have already narrowed in their mind what you do’ and ‘that is so demoralising.’ Her education at Goldsmiths prepared her to defend ‘the aesthetic of working as a textile artist and through the medium of textiles as an artist’ but ‘the reality is that the world is not very receptive towards that.’ Henley says the textile artist ‘identity has stuck with me but it doesn’t sit easy’ so now because of her experiences she tends to say ‘I am an artist’ and if necessary expands on this 45 Interview Janet Ledsham, 6/10/2011, Larne, Co Antrim 46 The Arts Council categories are: Music, Drama, Traditional Arts, Visual Arts, Film, Craft, Dance, Literature, Opera, Combined. 47 Interview Helen O’Hare, 27/1/2012, Belfast 454 to say ‘I paint with dyes and pigments and I sometimes use collage or stitch.’ 48 Laura McCafferty used to describe herself as a ‘textile artist’ and still thinks ‘textiles are an amazing material’ but they are ‘just things I use to create’ she doesn’t want to be ‘defined’ or ‘othered’ by the materials she uses, ‘textile art is limiting as a way to label or define yourself now.’ She struggles though when people ask what she does, ‘I say, ‘I’m an artist.’ Then they say, ‘What kind of art do you do?’ And I say, ‘… … uh … I draw.’’ She has considered all the possible terms and how much information she needs to give people and thinks ‘an artist who works with expanded drawing through an interdisciplinary approach’ which is often ‘drawing and textile’ is a good ‘open’ definition, but difficult to say - ‘so I just say artist.’ 49 Deirdre Nelson finds ‘it very hard to describe’ what she does, she used to sometimes say ‘textile artist’ but now she simply describes herself as ‘an artist who uses textiles.’ She doesn’t ‘shy away from using the word embroidery … I wouldn’t call it something like contemporary stitch.’ Though she does find herself ‘shying away a bit from ‘textile art’ and would never use the term ‘fiber art’ that just makes me think of macramé.’ She thinks textile art ‘sounds a little dated now and people have moved away from being very specific … people are going in and out of lots of different things – I don’t think it is as easily defined as it was before.’ 50 Many of the participants tried to avoid labels at all.
