Crysalis Skills Tour. I was invited to be the programme’s eco-friendly printing tutor, my role was to teach and share some of my knowledge of printing using environmentally friendly inks and fabrics. The session was a full morning of printing, both with exposed and stencilled screens, and the group of students (which included international students as well as UK-based practitioners) were a delight to teach.
Thread, the festival of Textiles at Farnham Maltings. I knew of course about Unravel, the famous knitting festival held at the same location, this was a chance to show my work at a specific textiles event so I couldn’t turn it down when invited to take part.
Floss & Mischief. Genevieve was a pleasure to chat to all day and her work was amazing.
Helen Foot whose talent as a weaver was blatantly obvious from the glance at the wonderful textiles that were flowing past me during set up. I went away with a couple of her scrap packs, I would have happily walked away with one of these beautiful scarves though.
Here are just a few more of wonderful artists (and lovely people) exhibiting who I was lucky enough to have a chin wag with:
Please take a look at their lovely work, I hope to see some of them again at next years event.
