Although this has radically declined the cultural memory remains strong and sewing skills have been kept alive in many families from mother to daughter and grandmother to granddaughter. All of our kits contain a pattern, instructions, 14ct Aida material, a needle and DMC threads which are pre-sorted onto a thread card. GREENBERG, C. and O'BRIAN, J., 1993. Participants worked on panels and incidents that they personally found difficult in ‘the recognition that suffering takes place independent of religion or cultural background.’ 76 The quilt treads a careful line in balancing the conflicting memories, evidence of long hours spent in discourse and a high level of awareness and sensitivity to the complexity of the task.

McWilliam Gallery, 4/02/2014 and other public presentations 470 The research revealed a model of self-generated and self-sufficient making that was widespread in the community and drew on expertise as required through a wider textile network. Alison Erridge felt embroidery fell down in the ‘search for recognition as another art form’ because embroiderers have ‘an eye for ornament … it’s decorative and you can’t stop it and decorative is less.’ 34 Pattern and the love of bright colours have been linked with children, primitive cultures, mental illness and hallucinatory states, associations that confirmed rather than disrupted the modernist view. 35 The art historian, Gombrich (1960) explained our innate fascination with pattern and repetition through the workings of visual perception. 36 He proposed that a psychological predisposition to ordering and pattern was universal, that the unconscious mind loved repetition.

Nicola Henley says she used to be proud to say ‘I’m a textile artist, an embroiderer … but the response has so often been derogatory in the sense of belittling, of it being woman’s work.’ When people hear the words textile art or embroidery they ‘have already narrowed in their mind what you do’ and ‘that is so demoralising.’ Her education at Goldsmiths prepared her to defend ‘the aesthetic of working as a textile artist and through the medium of textiles as an artist’ but ‘the reality is that the world is not very receptive towards that.’ Henley says the textile artist ‘identity has stuck with me but it doesn’t sit easy’ so now because of her experiences she tends to say ‘I am an artist’ and if necessary expands on this 45 Interview Janet Ledsham, 6/10/2011, Larne, Co Antrim 46 The Arts Council categories are: Music, Drama, Traditional Arts, Visual Arts, Film, Craft, Dance, Literature, Opera, Combined. 47 Interview Helen O’Hare, 27/1/2012, Belfast 454 to say ‘I paint with dyes and pigments and I sometimes use collage or stitch.’ 48 Laura McCafferty used to describe herself as a ‘textile artist’ and still thinks ‘textiles are an amazing material’ but they are ‘just things I use to create’ she doesn’t want to be ‘defined’ or ‘othered’ by the materials she uses, ‘textile art is limiting as a way to label or define yourself now.’ She struggles though when people ask what she does, ‘I say, ‘I’m an artist.’ Then they say, ‘What kind of art do you do?’ And I say, ‘… … uh … I draw.’’ She has considered all the possible terms and how much information she needs to give people and thinks ‘an artist who works with expanded drawing through an interdisciplinary approach’ which is often ‘drawing and textile’ is a good ‘open’ definition, but difficult to say - ‘so I just say artist.’ 49 Deirdre Nelson finds ‘it very hard to describe’ what she does, she used to sometimes say ‘textile artist’ but now she simply describes herself as ‘an artist who uses textiles.’ She doesn’t ‘shy away from using the word embroidery … I wouldn’t call it something like contemporary stitch.’ Though she does find herself ‘shying away a bit from ‘textile art’ and would never use the term ‘fiber art’ that just makes me think of macramé.’ She thinks textile art ‘sounds a little dated now and people have moved away from being very specific … people are going in and out of lots of different things – I don’t think it is as easily defined as it was before.’ 50 Many of the participants tried to avoid labels at all.

Cheney went to see Goldsmiths and ‘really appreciated it’ but preferred Manchester ‘because it had a reputation for techniques and processes and materials and that was really the hunger that drove me on.’ So Cheney trained at Manchester and thrived on the techniques and processes but only later realised that ‘design wasn’t something they did … and I’m very conscious that I teach on a course that is a design degree [NCAD] and the knowledge and the language and the thinking is very different.’ 70 Henley 66 Interview Nicola Henley, 13/11/2011, Dublin 67 Interview Michael Brennand-Wood, 10/11/2011, London 68 Private correspondence, Mike Catto, 9/6/2014 69 Adams contribution was singled out for praise by the CNAA on several occasions. 70 Interview Nigel Cheney, 7/7/2011, Dublin 122 noted the differences between her experiences at Goldsmiths and her daughter’s at NCAD; ‘Erin is getting that [design] training at NCAD, she will be more likely to succeed I think as a designer / maker.’ 71 Belfast When David Speir moved from Manchester to Belfast as Director of Studies for Fine Art in 1968, Lilla Speir accompanied him to a School of Art that did not even offer embroidery.
