Studio practice, Textiles

Returning to the studio…

After a spell of two months looking after and fretting about my sick mum, I’m at last back in the studio gathering up the threads of different project ideas. Taking time off of this kind puts everything in limbo, so play time is now my priority (within the limits of the usual commitments, naturally).

I thought I’d show you some of my experiments of late.  These are textile memory maps (I quite like these). Old fabrics that are memory triggers. I think there’s more to be done on this theme so will get onto some large ones soon. These are 30 cm square.

Perusing the fruits of a rummage through the vintage fabric pile before getting the shears out.

The beginnings of shibori stitching on linen (heavyweight Belgian painter’s canvas actually). So nice to work with. Will be dyeing this with something other than indigo – but plant dyestuff though.

Upcoming Gunyah Artist Residency

I’m looking forward to my upcoming artist residency at Gunyah from the middle of May. Research, play, writing and STUDIO TIME. Nature, self…and Pluto the velcro dog for company.
