A very busy week after teaching last weekend at Lutterworth in Leicestershire-lovely responsive group from the Embroiderers guild there. It’s full steam ahead for the Art Trail, photos to be posted later but here’s a small embroidery inspired by the winter skies in Lanzarote. I’ve been looking more closely at skies and hope to develop this further in my larger scale works.
A great day on Saturday in London despite the snow, at the AGM of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. Excellent talks included Sumi Perera and Debbie Lyddon who both work broadly within the field of textiles. Sumi makes extraordinary books and installations and Debbie waxes and works into cloth, images follow. You can find links to their websites under the society website link which is on my website page. Seeing work by other artists is so inspiring, makes you want to get on, so off to my studio to start a new piece! Both these images were part of their work made for Everyday Encounters Exhibition that I curated at the Willliam Morris Gallery, London, photography by Paul Tucker
