I am part of a textile group called Room6 and tomorrow we are setting up an exhibition at the Ashcroft Centre in Fareham, Hampshire
We are there from 16 April until 26 May, so plenty of time to pop in and see our work.
We are currently working towards our next exhibition ‘Missing Elements’ which will be shown at this autumn’s Knitting and Stitching shows at Alexandra Palacew in October followed by Dublin and Harrogate in November
Hope to see you all at one of these venues, do pop in and say hello
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, mine was different this year, I went to my daughter’s house, she has a new baby and my son in law was cooking so we all converged in Uttoxeter … wonderful to hand over the cooking …
and so, now my mind turns to the new year … what will 2018 bring ….
I have just posted some new classes on my granary website .. do visit .. hopefully there wil be some classes that interest you www.granarystudio.com
I am running a drawing course at Eastleigh college which finishes at the end of this term and working a little with theyoung students too, but I am cuting back on hours there … don’t forget the HNC Contemporary Art Practice, I will teach on that if it runs.. we still have the names from last year so hopefully it will … if not, then my time at Eastleigh College may draw to a close after 15 years!
the Granary Studio goes from strength to strength so I will not be at a loose end…
I hope to see you there or at the shows, I will be at ICHF shows in Glasgow and Birmingham, back to back in March.. and at Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in August, Hampshire Open Studios in Granary Studios in August too, then finally the Autumn Knitting and Stitching shows, probably at all three .
A very Happy and Healthy New year to you all
Just back from the wonderful city of Dublin where I was part of an exhibition called ‘The Sewing Machine Project’ by the group Studio21.. if you would like to know more about our group then please visit our website – www.studio21textileart.co.uk
meanwhile here is a flavour of our exhibition
the show will now travel to the knit and stitch show in Harrogate on the weekend 23-26 november, just a week and a half away!
Happy Christmas everyone… this is my Christmas card this year, with the words:
Communion is a vision of a world where all nations and cultures will stand together, no hatred simply because of colour, religion or culture, but an understanding and tolerance of their differences.

let’s hope the New Year 2016 is Happy and Healthy for you all, I will be busy in the studio for my upcoming exhibitions the minute the turkey is finished!
Golly, we are hurtling towards the end of November and that means just one thing… the Knitting and Stitching show is moving on to Harrogate ….. I just love this show, they are all subtly different and this is one of my favourites… Here I am working on the Artist in Action stand in 2010 for Art Van Go.. Note the change of hair!
I will be back there this year on the Artist in Action stand for Art Van Go on Friday Sat and Sun morning, so please pop over and say Hi if you are going to be there. Friday morning will see a double act with Kim Thittichai and I working on the same bench… we have a two man show coming up at the ICHF show at the NEC, B’Ham in March 2016, so this will be our first get together to start some planning and get some work done. Then I will work solo for the rest of Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday morning.
I will be working with procion dye … some drawing, some monoprinting, and anything else that comes to mind while I am working … I plan to decorate my washing line around the whole of my area!
See you there x
