The class of 2021 proudly displayed various modules of our three years of study at the Old Goods Shed in Clare Country Park last weekend (26th/27th July). We had lots of visitors, probably about 200 plus, who were interested in our work ad our futures. I was pleased to chat with people who have an interest in botanical printing and textile art, as well as pottery....fabulous. I will include a few pictures of the exhbition and my wonderful fello students.
So what for the future...well i am currently looking for a premises to lease (not expensive!) to set up a studio. I would like to find a place in a rural area, maybe a farm or a livery yard. My inspiration is nature, so to be embedded within nature is the answer for me.
Well, my Art Practice Degree is complete and the compnents are in for assessment. I will let you know the results!
In the meantime i would like to tell you about a wonderful course I attended between lock downs in 2020. If you fance spending some quality time in the woods learning about traditional crafts, then Ruby Taylor of Native Hands is for you. You will see a couple of photographs of me grinding grog and the finished pots 'baking' on the fire.
Ruby has all the information on www.nativehands.co.uk or @nativehandsuk
Keep safe all and bye for now xx
I am a blog newby, so here we go.......welcome to my website where I will be expressing my interest in art and nature. In a world that appears to focus on artificial intelligence rather than the reality of the grass beneath our feet or the wind in our hair, I will be exploring nature, naturally. I will expriment with the notion of combining the textures of textiles with elements of natures flora which I find whilst wandering the fields and lanes near to where I live.
Lets see how I get on xx
