‘Nature in Stitch’ by Rebecca Bruton – exhibition in the Riverside Cafe
Inspired by the natural world and its beauty, Rebecca explores the aesthetics of nature’s bounty through textiles and stitch.
Her Riverside Cafe Gallery exhibition will feature the following works:
A study into the form and beauty of green plants, the positive impact they can have on our urban environments and the restorative effects they can have on our physical and mental well being.
Fruits and Vegetables
A collection of vibrant fruits and vegetables made for exhibition within the NHS to celebrate the joys of healthy eating during National Nutrition Week.
An exploration of the diverse and intricate shapes and vibrant colours found within the world of seeds. A selection of seeds that focus on those with a vulnerable conservation status, those that are aesthetically interesting or are familiar to our everyday. A use of vintage fabrics marring with the vulnerability of seed: once used gone forever.
