Connecting Threads

Recently I was able to do some work experience with two artists from Manchester, Emily Hayes and Becky Waite at their exhibition "Connecting Threads" held at the Manchester Digital Lab.  

The work was based on collaborations the artists had developed with people attending various homeless centres in Manchester.  It was a wonderful mix of drawing, print, stitch and poetry.

Throughout the week of the exhibition people were able to drop in to add stitch or drawings to a printed landscape created from the original participants drawings.

Ruthin Craft Centre ... Japanese exhibition 2012

In the early summer I visited the Japanese exhibition at Ruthin Craft Centre in North Wales.  The work from the Nuno factory was amazing ... especially the way it was displayed ... long pieces hung from the ceiling.  It gave the gallery a wonderful ethereal feeling and made the pieces of work look monumental.

running alongside this exhibition was a display and sale of beautifully handcrafted japanese paper, bowls, textiles and utensils.

Irish flowers

I have just spent a few lovely days at the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Shanagarry, Co Cork.  The gardens were really beautiful and full of beautiful colours.
