The weather certainly feels autumnal at the moment and I was lucky to get away for a coastal break recently. I’m teaching ‘A Vintage Coastal Scene’ at a lovely new venue in Brighton ‘Atelier Beside the Sea’.
Another lovely course to sign up for is ‘Moving Memories’ at Les Soeurs Anglaises in France next summer from 6 – 12 July. Limited spaces …
I was delighted to have sold several pieces of work during my exhibition at Ruthin Craft Centre including some sailboats. I have just made some new pieces for forthcoming workshops at Hope and Elvis, Sussex Prairies and in Scotland.
On the exhibition front, I am delighted to have work in four international exhibitions over the next few months. ‘Ain’t the Archies’ continues at Timeless Textiles in Australia, ‘A Beautiful Mess’ starts in Vancouver, Canada, ‘Undersea Mobile’ will travel to Rome with SEW and I will be guest artist in Nantes at Pour l’Amour du Fil at the end of September, all being well.
I am also very pleased that my exhibition at Ruthin receives a wonderful review by Ellen Bell in the current issue of ‘Embroidery’ magazine.
I was happy to receive the latest reprint of ‘Textile Nature’ , which is five years old this year!
In the book is my hospital commission, still up in the multi faith centre at Tunbridge Wells Hospital ‘William Morris Trees’.
I am working on several new and exciting projects, which I will share in due course. It is great to be travelling even in a limited way again and to see ‘Textile Travels’ also being reprinted.
