At Edge of Light

July 10, 2021 @ 10:00 am - July 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm


Take in the beauty of shibori and indigo textiles created by Alex Hagen.  Alex uses the Japanese stitch-resist method of shibori to create abstract patterns on her distinctive plant-dyed pieces.

Alex describes the repetition of lines and rhythms as defining features of her work. A major influence is the Japanese concept of Ma, meaning ‘interval’ or ’empty space’. The relationship between space and pattern, and light and dark, are defining features of Alex Hagen’s designs.

Artist’s statement

“My motto is SLOW SUSTAINABLE HANDMADE – many of the processes I use are time consuming and require great care and I see pieces through from conception to completion. Wherever possible I use organic and/or GOTS certified fabrics, my favourites being linen, hemp, ramie and a hemp-cotton mix. I also work with vintage and antique fabrics. I hope that the slow and thoughtful production of my textiles will inspire people to keep and cherish them for a long time”.


At Edge of Light is free to attend, and accessible for wheelchair or mobility scooter users. All are welcome.
