Textile Art & Mixed Media Paintings at Easton Arts Trail

Well, that was a full on weekend taking part in Easton Arts Trail.  During the weekend I had a visit from a lovely lady who lived in Ilfracombe and was on the lookout for potential exhibitors in Ilfracombes arts trail in 2015, sounds exciting and will definitely explore further. Received lots of very positive feedback especially about my most recent textile art pieces. It can feel very scary putting your work out in your own home for others to view, but I am very pleased I did it.

 

For those of you who didn’t get a chance to come to the arts trail I have posted some pictures for you to view, maybe you can make it next year

Hopefully if you like some of what you see you will come & view the artwork for yourself next year

Textile Art & Preparing for Easton Arts Trail

I have just completed another piece of textile art using a similar theme to the last one (see post: Using Medium Gel to Create Images on Fabric – Part 5 Feb 23rd 2014). The image was created while walking on ‘The Rumps’ Polzeath, Cornwall, it was early evening in August and the moon was rising. While creating this piece I wanted to incorporate pieces of fishing line and wood I had found while strolling on beaches, especially after storms and we have had a few of them this year! I hope by recycling these objects I’m contributing in some way to conservation.

It has taken me a while to complete this piece but I am pleased with the end result. I am hoping to get it mounted and framed in time for the Easton Arts Trail taking place on 14th & 15th June – this weekend! If your in Bristol please pop in and say hello. Both pieces of work will be for sell I am still working out a price.

Preparing for Easton Arts Trail

Things are definitely hotting up in the household preparing for Easton Arts Trail   (link to facebook page)  I have been making bunting for the trail & also for a very special little girl, her face was magical when she seen it. I am looking at making named bunting to sell, £3 per letter if made with 100% cotton, £2.50 per letter if made  from poly cotton The colours are more vibrant if felt is used for the lettering (see Easton Arts Trail bunting), I’m happy to make to requests. If interested please use my contact page to message me or go to my facebook page by clicking on the link and message me. Hopefully see some of you at the arts trail.
