Elizabeth Jane Winstanley – Tactile Illusions

Manchester Craft & Design Centre are excited to announce their new exhibition, ‘Tactile Illusions’, a showcase of work by Elizabeth Jane Winstanley. Elizabeth won MCDC’s 8th Annual MMU Graduate Solo Exhibition Award for her experimental approach to embroidery.

Elizabeth is not quite what you’d expect from an embroidery graduate, and her use of experimental, innovative and alternative media pushes the boundaries of embroidery. She creates illusions of line and colour through using light emitting wire and patterns which she then screen prints onto acrylics.

Despite using digital processes and technologies, Elizabeth handcrafts each of her objects and artworks, challenging our perceptions of craft, embroidery and materials.
