Join textile artist Cas Holmes as she discusses her artistic practice and her life in stitch in this online, in conversation event. Hear how she has shared her experiences and methods through her most recent book, Embroidering the Everyday encouraging us all to look to our own environments for inspiration.

In her work, Cas invites us to re-examine the world and use the limitations sometimes imposed by geographic area or individual circumstances as a rich resource to develop ideas for mixed media textiles in a more thoughtful way. As part of this conversation, Cas will share her influences and offer further insight into some of her projects which feature in the book. She will speak about her own Romani heritage and how we can all use our personal histories, through objects and photographs, as a rich source of inspiration.
