I realize with all the juggling and irons in the fire that has been happening recently I have completely forgotten to mention here, the very exciting event, I have been starting to plan alongside a fellow textile artist with whom I share very similar interests, Jenny Leslie – her website is here
During the month of June 2016 we are planning to hold an exhibition which celebrates ethical and natural practices within textiles in its broadest sense. This will be staged in the barns at PS Arts, Datchworth, Herts, website here. Alongside this we are setting up a series of related workshops led hopefully by some well known names. The whole thing is entitled From the Earth. Its has a dedicated website and blog and a page on Facebook. We are also pleased to announce that Jenny Dean has very kindly agreed to open the exhibition for us.
We are going to announce a Call for Artists at the end of January 2015 which hopefully will give anyone interested in participating plenty of time to put something together. I am hoping that we will get at least a few expressions of interest from overseas in order to give the whole thing an international flavour.
