Extreme Stitching, USA and Exhibitions.
The course was part of the Making Tomorrow Conference which included guest speakers Lesley Millar and Alice Kettle as well as a workshop and lecture programme. On the course we experimented with different approaches to marking paper and textile with print and stitch to create small studies under the title of 'Extreme Stitching'. A few images of the 'show and tell' and snippets from the workshop by kind permission of the students.

I also went to an exhibition Things/Daiktai at the CIT Wandersford Quay Gallery. An exchange project between from CIT Crawford College of Art and Design Students and Kaunas Art Institute, Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania. A fascinating exhibition with a high standard of work but my own links with Japan and the use of cranes (Zenbazaru) in Japan seen as images for health and peace drew my attention.
