Last night saw the opening of a new exhibition of which ‘A Common Thread’ is a part. It comprises some of the work which was displayed at the Knitting and Stitching Shows plus a load of extras that did not make the final cut.
I loved the window display and my pieces blend really well with Frances Marrs beautiful ceramics.
I am particularly indebted to Ian and Nichole Wall for their efforts in providing the lovely recycled wood frames. Link here to their website.
The exhibition is open until March 14th and well worth a visit if you are in the area especially with the added incentive if the cafe with its delicious fare
I confess I have found it rather difficult to get going after the break but here I am at last. Last year was a busy year particularly being Embroiderers Guild Scholar but as that is now coming to an end, I can look forward to another year which promises to be quite busy.
The first event is my exhibition at Rums Eg, Romsey, Hants. which contains quite a bit of the work (and some extras) that I did as Scholar. This runs from 21st January to 14th March.
There is then a bit of a lull for which I am grateful and then I am doing a 2 day workshop at ArtVanGo at the beginning of June. Hard after that is Tea with Rozanne Hawksley hosted by Room 6. This is on 13th June which is a Saturday from 2pm onwards at Lower Upham Village Hall. More about both of these later
I will be part of an exhibition At Eastleigh College at the beginning of July and then as a guest artist with Zeronine textile artists at Hilliers Arboretum from the end of July and all of August.
At the moment I am planning to do Festival of Quilts and The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace with my trusty sidekick Alison Hulme and Bell, Hulme and Moore will be present at The Big Textile Show in Leicester again.
In October also, I am hoping to be part of an exhibition entitled ‘Stitched’ at Romsey Abbey.
In the meantime work will no doubt gather apace on From The Earth for June 2016. For anyone interested the call for Artists will open at the end of the month, giving people about a year to come up with something good.
