Well what can I say, I really have been awol but I have been learning so much. I was lucky enough to be able to take part in an eco printing workshop without mordant taught by the wonderful Nicola Brown. I absolutely loved this. It was just magical as you just do not know how your felted item is going to turn out.
Well I have been so busy getting ready for this exhibition with Ali from Ali Kemp Glass. Lots of felting has been going on for weeks, framing of artworks, hanging of artworks by Iain today and we are now open. You will find our joint exhibition at The Gallery St Martins in Lincoln until 4th June.
More details in the events on tab.
Yesterday (18.9.22) I attended the Autumn festival at Stourton Estates.
Wow what can I say, it was amazing and I would like to thank each and every one of you that took home a unique hat, scarf or one of my pieces of art. I now have a month to create furiously for the next event and Christmas will be here before I know it. I always say I will start creating for that earlier in the year. 🤣 I never do....
This was one of my biggest projects to date. I was asked to make 4 needle felted snowmen and the boy for a Snowman themed advent window in the village of Sudbrooke, Lincolnshire.
Pauline Loven of Period Wardrobe has made their amazing outfits and dressed the window.
I just love everything about this and it was an absolute pleasure to have been involved. I hope that it brings pleasure to everyone that sees it.
Goodness me I cannot believe that Easter has come and gone already. I work in education and I am afraid I count down to holidays as it means I can be more creative.
As the title says you are never too old to learn. I recently joined Dani Ives , who is an amazing fibre artist, online workshops to refine my 2d felting skills. I am mostly self taught but sometimes I struggle to see what is in front of me when I am painting with wool. I have learnt so much so far and this is a recent eye study I did. I think I am going to make it into a brooch.
