Surface: A tactile exploration in textile forms.
This month, Toronto’s Gallery 1313 presented the designs of Sheridan College’s 2013 Craft & Design Textile graduates. It was our Toronto Showroom rep, Jessica Bundy that had the opportunity to attend the opening event. TÉLIO had circled the date in its special events calendar and was eager to discover this year’s textile talents, especially since Jolanta Prochnowski, the TÉLIO & Cie Creative Use of Linen Award recipient of 2013 was also going to be exhibiting one of her designs. This was the perfect opportunity for us to finally see one of her garments as we were unfortunately unable to attend this year’s Sheridan’s award ceremony. A big hurray for Gallery 1313 and its Surface exhibition for allowing us to finally get a beautiful glimpse at this artistic assortment of crocheted creatures, naturally dyed fabrics, jewellery and works of arts that can dress your empty white apartment walls in no time!
Congratulations to Sheridan’s 2013 Textile graduates! See you around!
