Jae, a member of the 62 Group of Textile Artists, is continuing to exhibit with the Group and has work in their latest show at the Silk Museum Macclesfield (see details below. (www.62group.org.uk). She is still working from sketches made on a trip to Vietnam. The piece shown in the Header 'AH 1 Ribbon Development' was exhibited at the 62 Group of Textile Artists exhibition '62 Now" at:Upfront Gallery, Nr. Hutton-in-the-Forest, Unthank,  Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 9TG.

The following image "Poles Apart' is also worked from sketches in Vietnam.

A tangle of power lines, suspended in space, criss-cross the city skyline bringing energy to a frenetic and rapidly expanding Asian city. The vibrant colours reflect the brightly painted facades of the town houses.

Well respected textile artist Jae Maries shows how to bring dynamism into your textile work with the use of contrast: contract in colour, contrast in materials and contrast in imagery.

The techniques explored are very simple and are described through step-by-step instructions which can become the basis for work in greater depth. Paper techniques translate to fabric and stitch and the book's concentration on contrast will electrify your work.

Discover contrasts, by painting, cutting, knotting, knitting, weaving, wrapping and stitching.
