Lets talk Exhibitions!
First, lets throw back to November and The Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate.
I was teaching most of the time, but on the run from class to class I managed to catch up with my ‘faves’ and familiar faces:
Anne Kelly with her beautiful dolls house style pieces….
I taught some lovely students, who made a lot of colourful outcomes:
There is just too much to talk about in one column, but safe to say that if you attend another year, you will not be bored.
Second, I can now announce that I will be having a Textile Gallery myself at The Spring Knitting and Stitching show. It is on from 38th February to 3rd of March 2019, so if you can get to London, come say hi.
I wont be releasing much about my work, but the gallery itself is a documentation on symbolic mending and its connections with life….
That’s all for now!
As a freelance artist, designer, lecturer and tutor (how do I narrow down that description?!) I have been contracted by numerous arts organizations to provide Talks, Workshops’ and Masterclasses’ in Textiles, Print Making and Fine Art subjects. These include branches of the Embroiderers’ Guild, Textile Study Groups and The Women’s Institute. Every year I teach at The Knitting and Stitching shows and exhibit with the Artist in Action stand. Currently I am building up to my exhibition at The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia, London this spring; having also written articles or had work illustrated in Stitch, Inspired, Embroidery, Selvedge, Daphne’s Diary, Prima (online), Cloth Paper Scissors and the Batsford book ‘Be Creative with Textile Art.'
