I’ve finished laying down the last few pages of my Stories project, and to keep everything as adjacent as possible, ie two posts together on the same subject, here they are.
So this project will be one I will be working on for quite a while, so probably now won’t be seen until it’s finished. How it will be displayed is something I hope will unfold as I complete the pages with stitch and so on.
I had an excellent time last week at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham, in the Art Textiles: Made in Britain gallery. I had spent a great deal of time over the last 6 months organising this space, so was more than relieved it went so well. I would point out that other members of the group contributed too, as it is a huge undertaking.
It’s a fabulous group of very talented textile artists, and to say the stand was popular would be an understatement. Enough bigging us up, here’s a few images. There are more on our website, link below, and Facebook.
The above two images show some of my work from the gallery, Dark Tiger, a mixed media series of panels, 2.5 m x 80 cm, and Nest, 60 cm diameter, made from various wires, stitched paper, plastic, wood, and pebbles.
