This event is held on Zoom so you need to register to get the zoom details to join us 🙂
Join our TEA ’N CHAT with Textile Artist Nikki Parmenter, who will talk about her work, explaining some of the techniques she uses and also the contextual influences which determine the imagery used in each piece.
Nikki taught art for 30 years to secondary school children, and having left full time work in 2016, has been providing talks, demonstrations, summer schools, workshops to schools, groups and societies. She is a member of various art and textile groups.
Nikki exhibits her work widely and has written a number of articles for both magazines and online sites. She is based in Cheshire and specialises in mixed media textile pieces, taking inspiration from a variety of sources and particularly interested in the way societies created a series of visual symbols to represent the things which were important to them. She investigates myths, legends, stories and beliefs. She is also inspired by art, architecture and artefacts.
THE EVENT IS RUN ON ZOOM.
