Harrogate Here I Come!

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!

07I 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

Taking Stock

Well all the autumn exhibitions are now finished.. phew …. my house is full of work now ….

So, busy putting everything back in its place and getting ready to start on the planning for next years’ exhibitions … I have four bodies of work to create ….the first is for the group ByDesign of which I am a member and we are just starting on our new project, no further information at the moment but suffice to say we have created our starting points and we are beginning to work on the first pieces.

Studio21 also has an exhibition at the Stroud International Textile festival in Stroud, U.K. next May but of course the work is finished because we have just exhibited at the first venue in South Hill Park, Bracknell, U.K.

I have two exhibitions at the ICHF show ‘Fabric, Embroidery and Stitch’ in the NEC, Birmingham in March next year … one as part of a brand new group called Room 6 which will be our first major exhibition, very exciting… and the other a two man show with Kim Thittichai, equally exciting … just beginning to think about these two exhibitions and start planning….

Finally , I have a solo show at OEPC, Maastricht next October. so lots of work ahead of me for that exhibition. Another group I am a member of is ArtQuiltFusion, which is a group made up of artists from all the countries in European Union, will also be exhibiting in Maastricht, but again , it is the exhibition we showed in Alsace during September this year, so no further work to create and I will have lots of company over there…..

I am enjoying this lull before the storm!  Slowly getting my mind into gear… this is an exciting time, because I love to plan a totally new body of work and I aim for the whole year to be designed and made from these initial thoughts ….
