Workbook workshop

Well today we have had a lovely session on our workbooks. This was session 4 and everyone chose to do a full day so they could get their teeth stuck into their books. We went back over and extended the printing session we did in January. It was a lovely day working, chatting and having a cuppa (as well as a biscuit or 2) and some fantastic work was shared at the end of the session.

Miss Annabelle Dee's Gallery and workshop

Miss Annabelle Dee's Gallery and Studio is hosting a spring exhibition that I have some of my work in.

153 Leigh Road 
Leigh on Sea 

I sent 2 pieces to the exhibition and only wish I lived near enough to go in person, the opening looked very busy.

This one of my pieces on exhibition and for sale.

 I am planning to take a trip to Leigh-on Sea in the near future as it has a fantastic Arts community. I only wish I could recreate this in Brighouse... but you never know. 

Update on Cafe 139

Work is now on exhibition and for sale at Cafe 139 in Brighouse.

Halifax Arts Society

Recently I gave a talk and demonstration to the Halifax Arts Society. The talk was around the creation of my stitched collages and the process I go through. As it was the art society I hand been asked to focus on hand stitched work as not all members would have machines. So I set about creating some examples to get people thinking about the use of collage and stitch as a line.

The collages everyone produced were fantastic. A lovely range of colours and textures. As it was an evening meeting the group started their collages with the intention of completing them at the next meeting.
I will post some examples once I receive photos of them.
