We took part in a march by schoolchildren, parents, teachers and friends to commemorate the sailing of the Titanic and remembering all those who lost their lives when it hit an iceberg and sank on April 15th 1912. Every person on the march carried a placard remembering everyone one who sailed that fateful day. It was a poignant reminder of a terrible tragedy that affected Southampton and it's male population a large proportion of whom worked on the Titanic and lost their lives that day. The march coincided with the opening of the Sea Scape museum which will house a permanent exhibition about the Titanic and the people who worked and died on her.
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 .....
I have been a Textile artist all my life but only been trying to make a living from it since I was made redundant from my teaching job last year. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
