    Monday, December 13th, 9:30 a.m. we’re excited to share with you a lecture by Susan Hotchkis, speaking to us from Scotland!

    Susan studied at Manchester Metropolitan University, where she earned a BA (Hons) in Embroidery and a Master Degree in Textiles. She lectured in Manchester, teaching adults and predegree students in Art and Textiles.

    She left teaching in 2007 and now works at home in her studio on the Black Isle in the Highlands of Scotland. She uses print techniques and machine stitch to create two- and three dimensional abstract wall pieces, saturated with color and stitch to highlight the beauty found in the processes of ageing and decay.

    She has exhibited nationally and international and has recently had a solo show in Australia. She has undertaken private commissions as well as been included in several publications. In 2017 she became a member of the International Textile group, ‘Quilt Art’. The group currently has two touring shows: ‘Material Evidence’ and ‘Traces’. She is also a member of SAQA, SDA and has recently joined ‘Edge Textiles’ Scotland.

    Her website is www.suehotchkis.com. You can also find her on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/sue.hotchkis, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
