Brian McAvera (1987) curator of the Directions Out exhibition said he had searched for Northern Irish women producing artwork on the Troubles for inclusion but had been unable to find any as they were ‘preoccupied with 19 Rita Donagh, (born / lives England but with Irish ancestry) made overt political work during the 1970s & 1980s about specific incidents during the Troubles, as did her husband Richard Hamilton. 20 Interview Irene MacWilliam, 7/9/2011, Drumbeg, Co Down 21 Interview Alice Maher, 19/10/2011, Co Mayo 328 feminist individuality.’ He identifies Marie Barrett and Una Walker as the two women who produced a significant body of work in response to the Troubles (pre-1987). 22 Walker’s work during the 1980s focused on feminist concerns, nevertheless McAvera identifies Crannog (1985) as one of Walker’s installations that ‘can obviously be read as the classic Northern Ireland ‘us and them’ situation.’ 23 Catherine Harper was working in a similar way to Una Walker in the late 1980s using the bog landscape and mummified bog bodies to explore feminist concerns and the place of women in a divided society as well as the wider political situation.

Another bonus is the must read section at the beginning of the book on basics supplies, choosing and using fabric and sewing basics. Creith says that when she goes into schools ‘the teacher is panicking and saying stand back, stand back, but I let the kids touch anything they want, shoes and all.’ Red Shoes, Red Carpet incorporates ‘glitzy fabrics and velvets’ with handmade papers ‘creating a fabric with scraps and blending it 15 Interview Alice Maher, 19/10/2011, Co Mayo 16 Interview Helen McAllister, 26/6/2011, Jordanstown, Belfast 394 with stitch.’ It was about celebrity and ‘the red carpet and how it is not that important’ and while Creith thinks her early commercial work has dated she still feels comfortable with this piece. 17 Seamus McGuinness is ‘interested in how art works in society’, in audience perception and how cloth artworks work, ‘and they work through touch … people automatically go up and touch them.’ There is an ‘instinctive quality … an innate relationship with cloth, we are not afraid of it.’ People don’t touch ‘paintings and sculptures in a gallery’ we have an ‘undue regard’ for them and the gallery policy of ‘do not touch.’ When 21g Site of Conversation was shown in the Royal College of Physicians in Dublin the work was installed throughout the building, ‘so instead of giving the talk in the lecture hall we moved the people through the building giving the talk among the work.’ Figure 7.6. 21g (2013) was installed as part of The Shirt Factory Project in Derry, an installation of 104 shirt fragments, 84 male and 18 female, ‘suspended at body height, recalling the absent body.’ 18 Being familiar with the work through research and having seen images and video of the installation, I was unprepared for the visceral way it confronts the viewer who steps within it.

This commission was ‘proper money’ but Henley thinks to get reliable access to those sort of major commissions you need to have a ‘good agent’ who has the right contacts – especially if marketing and promotion are not your strengths. 75 Nicola Henley says the opportunities for commission or exhibition have ‘dried up’ since the Irish economic crisis. Nolan is represented by the Kerlin Gallery, Dublin. Embroiders usually have their favorite stitches and may learn new ones from fellow embroiderers, but Betty Barnden's Embroidery Stitch Bible is an important reference for those wishing to improve their technique.

MacWilliam has come to the conclusion that ‘quilts’ like these should be done in individual panels, so that when the quilt has served its purpose, everyone can keep their own panel. ‘If they are individual units they can be joined casually or displayed individually… There is nothing as striking as a wall that is totally covered in work.’ 106 The Art Worker’s Coalition used this strategy in 1966 in Los Angeles to protest against the Vietnam War, by creating a 100 foot long wall consisting of more than 400 two-foot square artworks.

Stitchin' Ovations has innovative designs for counted cross-stitch, blackwork and Hardanger by numerous designers. By 1700, variations of this type of embroidery had spread to northern Europe where it developed further into Danish and Dutch Hedebo, Scottish Ayrshire work and Ruskin lacework as well as Norwegian Drawn Work, as it was then called. The other major difference is that a needlepoint design fills up the entire fabric, while cross stitch can be large or small but almost always has blank canvas around the stitched image.

You will be demonstrating rigorous analysis in the exploration and development of your design ideas for fashion textiles.

Thirty-two women worked together to make a quilt that demonstrated ‘a tentative coming together to express a vision for a new inclusive Northern Ireland society’ and this required a use of imagery that would be acceptable to all 4 groups. 77 A visual analysis of the Shared Visions quilt demonstrates the lack of an existing visual language through which this ‘new inclusive’ society can be expressed. Elizabeth Boyle (née Morwood) Born 1908 India, died 1995 Canada Elizabeth Boyle studied English at Girton College Cambridge (1926) and an MA at Berkley (California).
