Went into a school today to work with Yr 10,11 and Yr 12s....I showed them a technique that I have developed when I make my landscapes ............they did a great job ...they took the idea and ran away with it ....had a great day ...
It's my man's Birthday today ...had a busy day and went out for a meal with family ...perfect ...:)
(ps sorry I can't seem to comment on this blog or anyone elses ...what is happening ? Anyway thank you for all your lovely comments .....xx)
Ok just needed to explain my last post ...Don't worry Elfi I did NOT use the woven lampshades for lights but I attached them all together to make a sculpture based on the middle earth, the oceans, the land, the sky and the heavens....all woven by yr 2 ...well done everyone you did a splendid job ...:)
I am a qualified Textile Teacher but now I am lucky enough to follow my dream being a full time Textile Artist and I love every minute I spend creating in my studio at The West Wing. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
I run workshops for schools, colleges and groups.
I work 1 to 1 with individuals who might want help with basic sewing or more advanced techniques.
Commissions are always welcome please get in touch with me to discuss your requirements. No textile job is too small .....:)
I sell my work through Etsy and you can find me on Facebook at Artymess Textile Art ...come and say hello.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
