All Things Nautical

The last couple of weeks have had a definite nautical theme to them. My exhibition Places, Spaces, Traces launched at the Barony Centre, West Kilbride at the end of August. This exhibition is a community engagement project supported by Craft Town Scotland. The images of the open event have kindly be sent by Fiona Doubleday and  Sam Bannister

Fiona Doubleday reports:
Cas Holmes has collaborated with Scottish Potters Community, the local primary school and the New Scots group which includes refugees now living in Scotland. The exhibition is designed to be wandered through and, as you do, you can't help but immerse yourself in the sentiments behind each and every piece. Stitched Stories has a piece in it that travelled to Antwerp with Cas and has now come back to Scotland where our story began. This is a remarkable exhibition that speaks so many truths about human resilience and the need for compassion. Cas had begun a conversation that needs to continue

That I have been able to continue to collaborate and create has been down to friendships built over the years. It was lovely to get  a few hours away over the last few weeks and as close to the water as I can. I met up with good friends at Fibre Arts Tales Two   to celebrate 60 years of  Light Vessel 21 and hoist sails on a Thames Barge with Tiller and Wheel.

Who knew that a sail could be so heavy?

There was lots of goofing around and laughter.

I also managed to get to Riverside Country Park in Gillingham with a good friend so have caught up on my fix of sea air of sorts

Visit my website to catch up on  what is coming next including exhibiting with Art Textile Made in Britain at the Knitting and Stitching Shows.
