This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of Madelaine Hutchin’s work in the UK. Her retrospective collection is an eclectic range of Quilting and Textile delights collected and created from a lifetime of working with fabrics. See highlights from her remarkable artistic career with work that plays with texture and colour. Madelaine has lived and travelled in Africa, the Far East and Europe and her art incorporates the diversity of materials and methods experienced and enjoyed.
Her art has been exhibited extensively including at the prestigious Charles Henry Foyle Museum in Redditch.
At her Goring studio, Madelaine keeps her stash of colourful fabrics from which she has created many quilts for family and friends with some private commissions. She has also completed some larger wall hangings for the local Catholic Church which are displayed at Easter and Christmas. She loves to dye her own fabric which provides a very wide spectrum of colour and shades complementing the vibrant African cloth and batik from Indonesia or Malaysia.
Many of her more recent projects are finished in Vietnamese or Thai silk, this being her preferred material.
Madelaine studied at Colleges in Chelmsford and Luton before graduating at Windsor College of Art and Design. She is an active member of the “Diversity Textile” group who show their new work biannually, and some of her pieces have been included in specialist art publications.
