textiles
My grandmother taught me how to knit, crochet and sew. Then I forgot all about it … until recently. In what seems like the blink of an eye, I have moved from hurling crucibles full of molten iron to stitching the delicate wing of a moth onto pure silk. I have made insects from red velvet, tiny birds and spindly spiders from discarded table linen and crochet blankets which are reminiscent of woodland walks and underwater scenes! The fact that this type of work is portable is very appealing to me, as I can barely take a short train journey without getting itchy fingers, and having a small piece of embroidery stashed in my bag satisfies my need to create on the move!

Sketchy little sketch, the beginning of a new work. Could this be St Brigid? Will she be ready for February?

Put the finishing touches to this breezy little painting today! You can almost hear that harp being played by the wind with a little help from the tree! Aeolian Dream! @wildthorne @tworiverspaper @shinhanart

Birds were singing their little heads off this morning! Seemed only right to splash some colour around. We were interrupted by the sound of a vehicle in the distance reversing! Hope 😂 Didn’t put us off though! Hope you enjoy their pretty songs 🌟💚🌟
