Thank you my lovely friends for such a warm welcome back to blogland ....Today we went to The Wool House run by Element Arts. Its a fantastic Mediaeval building which Element Arts were hoping to run as an exhibition space and music venue ...alas Southampton City Council in their wisdom (ahem !!) think This wonderful place would be better off as a pub ......speechless !! so the project will be finishing almost as soon as it's started ...Well done Southampton City Council you must be very proud ....Anyway Jim was playing there today and a jolly good time was had by all ....:)Here are some pics of the gorgeousness of the timbered roof and my lovely Jim ....
Hello out there in blogland ...I must apologise for my absence here ...I have had my head turned by another for a while ......Facebook !!! but now I am back with posts of colour, love and animals ...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 .....
