”Nice Bit of Stuff” , Fibre and Form from 13th-26th April at the Halpern Gallery. Chatham
One woman’s vanity case full of her unfinished patchwork pieces becomes the inspiration for 12 artists using textiles to create exciting new work. I will also be running a short workshop as part of Nucleus Arts jumpstART programme on Wednesday 19 April. Further details here.
I have been working on new pieces as part of the my contribution to the exhibit. Detail below of work in process, 'Absence,' part of a new series of works 'Making Connections'.
Finding time to get back into the studio to do some work in the last few months and stitching has been so valuable to my won well-being. Often I sit quietly in the evening whilst listening to the radio. at the same time.
So love this 'posed' studio shot by artist and photographer Robert Greshoff.
My 'second' studio space (a bench under a window indoors) doubles up as a shared sewing machine and on-line teaching space. Below is the set up for my recent Stitch-Sketch-Book-Map workshop with West Dean College (The PC and second camera is just off screen) This has proved popular with a second course scheduled for May.an in place workshop at West Dean in September. An 'in-place' workshop at West Dean is scheduled for September.
I have a few teaching events coming up in the next few months including private bespoke projects with art groups and schools.
