Aradne makes jewel-like figurative stitched works. Ian Sherman's assemblages are of miniature extraordinary worlds made using found objects. Both artists draw upon autobiography and the imaginary to create works which use material process as part of the construction. In relation to the Radical Craft exhibition, they will be in conversation with Alice Kettle, who is herself an artist working in textile. She also wrote the chapter 'Outside, Inside and In Between' for Hand Stitch Perspectives (2012), which illustrated work of artists who consider themselves outside of the artistic mainstream.
