Lecture – September 12th

The Quilt as Art – Sara Impey

Sara Impey is an award-winning quilt artist from Essex with work in many public
collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum. A former journalist, she stitches
texts (which she writes herself) on to her quilts, enabling her to use the textile surface to
comment on social or personal issues, sometimes with a dash of humour.
 Today Sarah
shows examples of her work and discusses how other contemporary textile artists are
using the techniques of quilt making to produce wall- hangings or three-dimensional
artworks which transcend the traditional notion of the ‘quilt’ as a functional object.
