The project ran from July to mid-August so it couldn’t call on the support of schools (which were on holiday) and the young teenagers the Duchess involved didn’t remember the bombing and ‘didn’t comprehend the enormity of it.’ Poyntz made the panel in ten pieces to represent the ten years that had passed. ‘It was a huge job … the time pressure was just constant, constant, constant.’ She explained the symbolism, ‘The first section, the dark piece, is embroidered extensively.

You must be seeing the wild horses in the emporiums with hard structures and leather finish. You do not have to bring your sewing machine or overlocker back to where you purchased it from – a lot of the time, the problem can be solved on the same day! Conversations with Constance: a celebration of the life of Constance Howard MBE. We will work with our customers to help them be profitable and successful. In Australia she had ‘a table as a studio space’ and the work she produced was table sized, while in Finland she ‘had a space the size of this whole textile department to myself’ and all sorts of equipment and the work she made was 12ft x 8ft. ‘I think you respond to the space you are given.’ She doesn’t have a studio at home but while working at the School of Art was ‘able to print large pieces’ in the print room and then ‘embellish them at home, I can fold them up and control them and stitch on a bit at a time.’ If she hadn’t had the university space at the print stage she would ‘have had to make the work differently, you make what you can with the materials you have got, the space you’ve got and the funding you’ve got.’ 14 Helen O’Hare and Wilma Kirkpatrick worked on the Saint Anne’s Cathedral Titanic funeral pall commission in the School of Art and at home.

Each quilt is made up of 19 picture panels and certain themes reoccur throughout the quilts, the conflict in Northern Ireland, AIDS, natural disasters, environmental issues, tragedies and human achievements. The art is predominant here for the last 300 years. You can make your own flowers, birds, or whatever just from pictures you find. McCafferty believes ‘there are lots of different strands within the Crafts Council in England; you have people like Claire Twomey and Freddie Robins and Shelly Goldsmith’ who are ‘really working within contemporary art.’ She doesn’t feel she is ‘ditching craft’ just ‘curious about it all’ but does worry that people might think, ‘Who does she think she is?

When you work the design you stitch over these long stitches, giving the central design a raised look. Hazel Bruce never wanted to be a ‘full-time textile artist’ because she likes ‘working with people and being involved in something else.’ She sees herself as a textile artist ‘in the tradition of wall-hung textiles’ and prefers to ‘work for a gallery environment’ so the 62-group has been the ideal vehicle for her to maintain an exhibiting practice alongside teaching. 88 The 62-group did not become assimilated within the mainstream art-world although a good number of the core members, such as Audrey Walker, came from fine art backgrounds (mostly painting).
