Tuesday 13th May – Sunday 25th May 2014


The 04 group is a collection of 10 textile artists based in the Dublin area who have been exhibiting regularly since 2004. Hence the title of our exhibition – Ten artists celebrating our Ten year’s of creative collaboration! From a variety of backgrounds, we all have completed the City and Guilds diploma in Design and Crafts – Stitched Textiles.


Our exhibitions include: ‘Running Threads, Visitors Centre, Phoenix Park, 2011. ‘Purple in the Park’ at the same venue, 2009 and ‘Plant, Fibre and Form’, Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, 2007. We have also exhibited alongside groups such as the Irish Guild of Embroiderers, Feltmakers Ireland and the Irish Patchwork Society amongst others.


Incorporating stitch, fabric, paper, fibre and found objects and using both contemporary and traditional techniques, we have pushed the boundaries of textile practice as individuals and developed our own unique style. This innovative collective exhibition explores a range of different themes from various cultures worldwide to topics that are more personal and reflective. A piece might explore memory – how one renews it and captures it in one's imagination.


Another works with pattern in various forms – exploring fluidity and movement…. The group is passionate about the potential and wonder of working with textiles and this ambitious exhibition is testament to that passion.
