The entire cloth is covered in a lozenge design with smaller ones within the border and is again intricately worked in different colors. The Cross Stitch Sampler Kit comes with everything you need: cross stitch fabric, wool yarns in beautiful colors, a wooden frame for working and mounting your project, a metal needle and needle threaders, illustrated instructions, and a pattern and lots of design ideas. Textile artists explored similar issues to fine artists and often the finished work looked similar but Auther (2010) showed that they ‘occupied different locations within the art world’s complex network of power relations.’ 39 There was a time during the 1990s that contemporary art seemed disinterested, dismissive even, of ‘making’ and ‘skill’ but a shift began around 2000. 40 Since then contemporary art has shown an increasing interest in slow, skilled craftsmanship and ideas such as ‘craft’ and ‘hand- made’, which brings issues on how things are made, by whom, and for what audience into the debate.

Helen Kerr did an NDD in Belfast during the 1950s with ‘printed textiles’ as main subject and ‘woven textiles’ as secondary. Lilla Speir and Susan Aiken aligned Belfast with the art schools in England that specialised in embroidery with a fine art, creative approach, through their choice of external examiners from Goldsmiths and Manchester. There were rows at the time between Len Pilton and David Speir as to which department should ‘own’ embroidery, fine art or textiles.

She remembers the alignment with Fine Art working well ‘in the early days when we had Janet Ledsham and David Ledsham’ and they would ‘take students between them.’ 104 During that time Bruce remembers ‘we would often have students from fine art’ but in later years she found that she seldom got fine art students sent to her for tutorials. ‘If I have a student using photography or print or something I always send them off’ to have a tutorial with the relevant staff but ‘in Sculpture in particular if you are into textiles they think they can handle it and the same in painting.’ Bruce says Shirley MacWilliam (lecturer in sculpture and daughter of Irene MacWilliam) is an exception because she has a ‘textile heritage with her mum so she gets it … and we can have that conversation.’ 105 The alignment of textile art with fine art influenced the work that textile students produced and Bruce believes it was not always in a beneficial way, ‘students chased marks’ believing they would get higher marks if their work 102 Interview Janet Ledsham, 6/10/2011 Larne, Co Antrim 103 Interview Karen Fleming, 8/8/2011, Belfast 104 Interview Hazel Bruce, 22/8/2011, Belfast (David Ledsham was a lecturer in Painting) 105 Interview Hazel Bruce, 22/8/2011, Belfast 131 was more conceptual than practical. ‘There was this sense that you had to reduce and reduce and reduce down till there was virtually nothing’ sometimes ‘I would look around the shows … and think you would never know these students were textiles.’ Karen Fleming remembers people thinking they were working conceptually but ‘everything was still very much coming from the materials and the processes and the concepts were added on the top.’ 106 Some course modules drew students from across Fine and Applied Art and Hazel Bruce remembers students ‘coming back from history and theory tutorials in tears’ when they had tutorials with tutors who were ‘very fine art oriented’ and had ‘no respect for anything other than a very narrow type of practice.’ Bruce felt that if you were ‘working across fine and applied art’ you should have knowledge of both spheres but ‘in the long run I had to just make sure that students went to them well armed.’ Bruce wanted students to never have to ‘make excuses’ for textiles; she wanted to teach them to be ‘clear and confident and proud of being part of something that will continue.’ 107 Bruce felt Textile Art ‘gained a lot from Fine and Applied Art but there was definitely an element of holding on to some fine art coat tails’ and although ‘we had come together quite nicely in the last couple of years’ as a faculty it was ‘too unwieldy’ so it had to be split.
