Yesterday five Broderers held a most enjoyable and stimulating workshop, led by Carla, exploring some of the design ideas that can be used to underpin our textile practice.








We were also given a 30cm. square box frame with the intention that it should be used in some way to from the basis for a piece of work for our next exhibition, 'Underpinning' at 44AD in Bath next year.

memories of Newark Park

Taking down the work at Newark Park it was a sad day to be leaving the wonderful National Trust property. Many thanks to all the wonderful people who work and volunteer there. It was such an inspiring place and I was fascinated to see how my work changed and now I am back home with my work I'm re-evaluating the pieces I've made to look at developing them more. The wear of daily life is still central to the work and I'm wondering if I should place them outside again now I know what the weather does to the fibers. The second idea is to re-structure them to make objects. Or possibly both...
