Connected to the co-op: Ann Tutt

Textile artist Ann Tutt is showing a collection of work which is multi-faceted, taking a wry look at imitation in the fashion industry whilst exploring the emotions of feeling like an outsider artist.

Ann Tutt has created a range of textiles, garments, and art, based around manipulated logos and designs, which will include elements from the local convenience shop co-op, which has been a focus stemming from Ann’s Lancastrian weaving roots. All the materials used are recycled. Sustainability and using what’s at hand is core to Ann’s work.

About

Ann Tutt studied textile design at Nottingham Trent University and went onto be a fashion stylist at Selfridges, London, followed by a career in costume in the Film, TV, Theatre and Arts.

After settling in Oxford and starting a family, she built her own brand of upcycled children’s wear.

'This made me question modern fashion industry practices and research more sustainable alternatives. Something I hold central to my work and lifestyle is the 3 R’s philosophy of re-use, repair, recycle.'

As well as practicing her own textile work. Ann Tutt is studying a MA in Education artist practice.

Connected to the co-op runs from 20th March - 9th April 2023
