London born multi- disciplinary visual artist and digital illustrator Becki Kremer who now lives in Stoke will showcase her work within our campus cafe .
Becki ’ s work is heavily inspired by bold prints , floral patterns , her Caribbean heritage , eyecatching cartoons , and anything kitsch . Becki particularly enjoys loud colour combinations , and is always looking to work with as many varied mediums . Aside from illustration , Becki also regularly work on textile projects , large-scale hand painted murals , and running art workshops with some of the talented arts organisations locally .
How do we make the time to be creative ? While the benefits of creativity for both individual wellbeing and social cohesion are well recognised , finding the time to be creative remains a challenge .
In threading time geographer and maker Clare Holdsworth presents her own interpretation of making time for creativity . Using fabric craft the pieces in the exhibition capture how time is the material of making . Rather than seeing time as a barrier to creativity ; time threads creativity together through memory , starting , finishing , and enjoying the pleasure of making itself .
The exhibition will be supported by participatory activities offered by the Cultural Sisters , a participatory arts organisation based in Stoke on Trent .
The exhibition is funded by The Leverhulme Trust through a Major Research Fellowship : The Social Life of Busyness in an Age of De-Acceleration .
