Today has been most enjoyable: I delivered a talk on Folk Art to Harrogate Embroiderers’ Guild. A lovely group of people with some good questions that kept me on my toes! Below is a photo showing detail from one of my Russian folk art pieces.

This week several pieces of my work are in an exhibition at Gracious Street Methodist Church as part of Knaresborough’s visual arts festival, FEVA. On until the end of the day on Saturday 22nd August, you can see a range of work by members of the textile group Decora everyday from 10am to 4pm. One of my pieces from a collection inspired by Russian and Eastern European folk art, ‘Fruitful Offerings’, is shown below.

I have a joint exhibition ‘Folk Threads’ with Kate Fenton at The Golden Ball which opens on Saturday 23rd May and runs until 24th July. Come along and see what you think – view the exhibition in the Garden Room when the pub is open! A lot of my pieces have been inspired by Russian and Eastern European folk art; I also have a number of Japanese inspired pieces.

This Saturday sees the opening of the 1st Anniversary exhibition by the Open Art Collective entitled ‘Organic Mechanic’. Inspired by a suggestion put forward by someone in the community – ‘robots!’ – members of the collective have been beavering away on their latest pieces of art. Come along to the Golden Ball to see the exhibition in the Garden Room. I have one piece in the exhibition which is inspired by the work of the Russian avant-garde artists of the 1920s. I can’t believe that it is already one year ago that the collective was first formed!
