We are Living in a Virtual World
I can almost hear Madonna's lyrics to Material Girl as I sit her writing this blog. I had just graduated when this early hit came out in 1984. Certainly a song that reflects that decade. In my case, translate material as cloth, and virtual needs no explanation. This interview with Dover Arts Development is part of a series focusing on what their project artists have been doing during this time.
I have just completed the last few live sessions of Drawing and Painting with Kent Adult Education and am taking a break until September to focus on my own work and projects.
Beyond the Festival of Quilts goes virtual with it opening on Thursday 30th July, 12 noon, with the announcement of the Virtual Quilt Awards. Live Masterclasses, and lots of free content including short workshops and guides, galleries and access to your favourite shopping. I will be there with something....earlier I was filming, one handed, and waiting for the sun to move.
I will be working with TextileArtist on a Stitch Club project during the first week of August. I am really looking forward to meeting some of you there.
It has been good to start scheduling in some workshops for the Autumn Winter period including Hope and Elvis in October and a Winter School at West Dean Collage All workshop dates as they come in will be posted on my website. Time for a cycle
