2015 promises to be an exciting and busy year. I am looking forward to exhibiting again with my friend and colleague, Jan Miller, at Hawick Museum in the Scottish Borders in April/May and at Farfield Mill in Sedbergh in July/August.
I’m looking forward to teaching again at Burnbrae Studio near Kelso in October. We shall be developing work based on African adornment and experimenting with a range of materials including metals and paper clay. The pin brooch above was inspired by a Zulu blanket pin. For more details of the workshop look at www.burnbraehol.co.uk
Last Autumn at Burnbrae the workshop was based on ideas from Kanthas. Here are some I bought in Kolkota depicting Indian legends which gave us a starting point.
The students combined kantha quilting with printing and just enjoyed the rhythm of stitching by hand. Just getting started!
