About

Traverse is a group of textile and mixed media artists, who came together in March 2017, after studying Experimental Textiles. We begin exhibiting in 2018.

The name ‘Traverse’ grew out of a sense of looking or moving sideways, to find different perspectives as we approach a theme for our work – we may not all travel in the same direction to get there, or use the same vehicle. Indeed, although our work is loosely described as mixed media, we each have our favourites, including working with paper, metal, hand-dyed fabric, felt, 3D and fashion, using heat, print, paint, and stitch. A large part of our ethos is to celebrate our diversity, to share our various strengths and to grow together.
