    It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! I’m part of two fairs in December: Saturday 9th at Bar Convent on Blossom Street, 10-4pm. Then the Basement at City Screen on Sunday 17th, from 10.30-4.30pm. Do call by and say hello!

    November 30, 2015 by Sarah

    Busy, busy, busy! For the past couple of months I’ve been making lots of lovely things for a Christmas Chalet outside the Judge’s Lodgings on Lendal in York: on Saturday 5th, Sunday 6th, Thursday 17th & Friday 18th December. Come and feast your eyes on textile art pictures, cards, gifts and homeware items! There will be several artisan stalls selling their wares, organised by Britain Does Vintage.

  3. Decora’s exhibition at Otley Courthouse

    November 4, 2013 by Sarah

    Yesterday we had the Preview for Decora’s first textile art exhibition! From Monday 4th to Saturday 30th November 2013 our work is on display at Otley Courthouse in West Yorkshire. Decora, based in North Yorkshire, are showcasing the varied textile art work of its 12 members. Opening hours are those of the venue: Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm www.otleycourthouse.org.uk

    I entered a trio of new pieces inspired by woodland animals which I have been working on for some time. The picture shows one of the pieces in progress – like the ‘Enclosure’ piece on display in the pub (see below), the image has been created using recycled paper, fabric and thread and has a 3D feel to it.

  4. Exhibition in the local pub!

    October 22, 2013 by Sarah

    Last Thursday there was a Preview of an exhibition by the Open Art Surgery collective. This is a group of local artists – of which I’m one – and we responded to the theme of ‘Your Place in Space’. The exhibition is in the Garden Room at the Golden Ball pub in Bishophill, York and runs for 6 weeks www.goldenballyork.co.uk

    I have one piece in the exhibition entitled ‘Enclosure’ which is inspired by nests and hibernation. This was a new venture for me to try and create a 3D piece in a box frame using recycled fabric, paper and thread.
