My trusty Singer ......my right hand machine at the Adult Learning Festival at Southampton Art Gallery today...Jenni and I volunteered to take some textile workshops so I did sugar skull brooches and fabric flower brooches and Jenni was customising old jeans and making them into skirts and bags ............a busy, tiring day
Jenni teaching how to customise and make bags from old jeans
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.
