Winner of NCCD’s Innovation Award at Lustre 2015, Chloe Solomon presents her ‘S K I N’ collection.
Chloe Solomon is a Bristol based jeweller, designer and maker. Her current collection, ‘S K I N’ has been inspired by the human form and the textures and colours found in skin have been the catalyst for this new body of work. Delicate pastel hues and crackled white surface textures make up a translucent material that Chloe has developed; these strips of ‘skin’ are then housed in silver linear forms.

Here & Now is the first major curated exhibition of contemporary tapestry in England for over 20 years. Showcasing the breadth of international talent and most innovative approaches to the medium, the show challenges the notion that tapestry is a dying craft and marks a point in time for the artform.
Alongside British tapestry weavers, the exhibition features artists from Australia, Norway, Latvia, Japan and the USA with over 20 artists represented overall.
Here & Now has been jointly curated by Bryony Windsor, Head of Exhibitions at NCCD and Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts, UK.
The show has been partly funded by the Daiwa Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
A fully illustrated catalogue is available to purchase from the exhibition.

A combination of plain weave, shape building, blending and hatching will be used during the workshop. Caron will demonstrate techniques while offering a friendly environment to work in. By the end of the workshop students will take home a completed tapestry sample.
