A new collection of works by textile artist, Rachna Garodia, establishing a quiet, contemplative connection with the natural world.

Rachna's intricately woven textures are akin to viewing a landscape, capturing the atmosphere, tone, and emotion from her daily walks. Bringing unexpected textures together in a warp has always been the starting point for Rachna's work. She juxtaposes cotton, linen, silk, nettle, hemp, and wool with found materials like paper, bark, seedpods and twigs. All her works are unique; each takes shape slowly in her studio in West London. While being self-reflective and meditative in her approach she explores small and large 3D forms challenging the boundaries of weaving.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an Artist's Talk on Sat 12 Nov 2.30pm. Rachna will be discussing her new book on Contemporary Weaving with editor Emily Steadman. Just drop in, no need to book.

Rachna Garodia trained at the prestigious National Institute of Design in India and The Royal School of Needlework in London. Her work predominantly involves hand embroidery and weaving. Her visual language continues to evolve, combining echoes of her life in India with the experience of living in London for the past 15 years. Her commissioned pieces are held in private collections in India, London and America.

George Bernard Shaw’s acid test of a mother-daughter relationship is one of his wittiest and most provocative plays. Written in 1894 but banned for thirty years by a Lord Chamberlain who found it “immoral and improper”, Mrs Warren’s Profession is a ripe attack on English hypocrisy and its “fashionable morality”.
