Managed to get away for a few days just to the Isle of Wight ..it's great to have a change of scene ......'A change is as good as a rest they say' and I have been quite depressed about the slow progress of my back but I was able to drive the 15 mins to the ferry .....i lay down over the crossing and the cottage was only a short drive from the ferry .......it's an idyllic cottage on a farm it's 16th Century and the garden is really old fashioned with lots of cottage garden flowers and quite higgledy piggledy .....we love it ....its so peaceful and beautiful .....i have taken my sewing machine and sewing stuff of course (the first thing to be packed in fact I've realised i haven't brought enough clothes ...ah well maybe I'll have to make myself some !!).....I've even done a water colour and pencil drawing .........xx
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 .....
