I’m looking forward to going to Make:Shift, the 2 day conference in Manchester next week, exploring craft and innovation.
10-11 November 2016 at the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester
Disappointed that I can’t stay on and go to Maker Assembly at Madlab in Manchester on Sat 12th. November
I was lucky enough to see two works by Yinka Shonibare at the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate and the new exhibition, J M W Turner, Adventures in Colour – both wonderful!
What a wonderful morning visiting this new gallery in Kings Lynn!
Sunlight & Gravity – work by Roger Ackling and Richard Long is on exhibition until 30th October 2016.
Sampling ideas for piecing and patching by members of Louth Textile Group
Louth Textile Group – ideas inspired by a collection of African textiles
There are some stunning galleries at the show at Alexandra Palace and one I loved was Findings shown by Alice Fox.
Her exhibits are thoughtfully displayed in a tranquil and serene space and a ‘must see’.
I’ve had a few months without developing and making new work. It’s been wonderful to throw myself into the hustle and bustle of family, friends, holidays, visits to exhibitions and time to work in and enjoy my garden.
Time to watch and time to think……..
Puffins, Hebridean skies and St Kilda
Now it’s time to start new work for Dis/rupt, an exhibition project by The Textile Study Group. It will be launched at the Select Festival 2017.
Work will be shown in the Museum in the Park and Lansdown Hall in Stroud as part of the Select Festival 2017 presented by SIT Select from 5-21st May 2017.
It is intended that the exhibition will then tour.
