Kickstart fulfils the Region's educational remit by offering its members a theme and a series of workshops to help them extend their skills in the design and execution of Textile Art. Its aim, for those taking part, is to achieve a piece of embroidered work from the annually selected theme and then for it to be exhibited. This year the topic selected is Archive and included visits to County Record Offices and Archivists, followed by Artist-led workshops. 2012-2013 is the 10th year of this highly successful programme. Many members, from the complete beginner to the more professional, have all gained experience and confidence from taking part in Kickstart.
The exhibition is the culmination of work done as part of this educational programme.
