Nikki Parminter

Welcome to the Zoom Room with Nikki Parminter

Nikki will talk about the development of her work from Paper to Wood, then Mixed Media to Textiles. She will show lots of examples and explain her approach to developing and realising a piece of work. She will describe her influences and the practicalities of making pieces on a large scale. She hopes that viewers will be encouraged to ask lots of questions and hopefully be influenced by some of the items she will show.

Nikki trained as a Fine Artist, taught Art for 30 years and took early retirement in 2016. She is a self taught textile artist and has exhibited widely in both solo and joint exhibitions. Nikki has also written a number of articles for magazines and online platforms, supported by Janome for whom she provides Masterclasses.
