UP-FRONT Exhibition in the Café

An exhibition of Art Bras in support of The Breast Cancer Charity

Up-Front are a group of female artists who met whilst studying City and Guilds Embroidery at Malvern Hills College, Worcestershire.

When their studies had finished they looked for a way to continue their friendship and share their creativity. In 2006 Up-Front was formed.

Following similar lines to the altered book genre, each artist chose a bra and through a variety of techniques, which included painting, beading and hand & machine embroidery, transformed the garment into a stunning piece of art.

Although these original pieces are not for sale they are being exhibited alongside complementary works of art by Up-front that may be purchased and a % from each purchase will be donated to The Breast Cancer Society.

UP-Front are Corrine Phillips, Cheryl Kirby, Valeri Jillard, Jill Holland, Gilly Mound, Sue Jewkes, Judith Clarke and Sue Hutchins.
