Tattoos in Thread

Saturday 7th September - Wednesday 18th September 2019


Julie Wilkerson

An exhibition of needlework, inspired by tattoos.

"My love of needlework began as a very young girl. My love of tattooing began aged 18, when I had my very first tattoo. The two came together when, in 2017, I did my first piece of textile inspired by my daughters tattooed sleeve.

And so then began my desire to marry the two passions. Tattoos and Needlework. One inspiring the other. And the culmination is now this, my first solo exhibition; showing that one art form with a needle can inspire and bring about another art form, also done with a needle. And so here is... Tattoos in Thread."
