Spring has arrived. Colour is everywhere. Lovely longer, warmer days – well mostly.I have spent the last couple of weeks taking things a little slower than normal to recover from a cold. The squares needed to be cut into circles, so over this time I have slowly cut all this. I have very blunt scissors and a few callouses on my fingers, and I am much happier with the result.Too good to throw away, I will keep it for…someday. The 3 full sets of these circles now have to be put aside for other projects.
Fibreswest is only a couple of weeks away and I have a lot of textile admin to complete by then. Posting of work, preparing works for a sale table, updating bio data…
I visited a lovely exhibition of 40 x 40cm art quilts at Wanneroo Gallery, Australia Wide 4 presented by Oz Quilt Network. You can see them online at Australia Wide 4 or at one of the many galleries around Australia the exhibition is traveling to.
WAFTA’s guest speaker this month was Paula Hart. She gave an overview of her community art projects and an in-depth look at the processes for the stunning Lace fence project for West Leederville Primary School, from students drawings, to design, to installation. Cyclone fencing is made using the sprang technique. How the lace work sections are incorporated into this without the fencing coming apart was a great topic of conversation.
I am very pleased to have my work Silver Linings selected for Art Quilt Australia 2015 to be held in Geelong Oct – Dec.
