Love this place

Love This Place...
I have just returned from a week in Amsterdam, I am lucky as my   son lives there. One of my favourite places to visit is the 
The TextielMuseum Goirkestraat 965046 GN Tilburg.
 
The TextielMuseum is a working museum,offering  a unique combination of inspiring exhibitions, educational programmes and
a specialised workplace for research and development.
It is a leading centre for textile knowledge and expertise, with its own laboratory: the TextielLab is part specialised workshop
 for the manufacture of knitted and woven
fabrics, and part open studio where innovation is central.
Under the supervision of product developers and technical experts, national and international designers, architects, artists and
promising students explore the endless possibilities of materials and techniques. The TextielMuseum is a versatile and important source of inspiration for anyone interested in the past and future
 of textiles.

GNCCF 2018




Thank you to GNCCF and HOTHOUSE.
With the support of my creative family I was able to keep
it together during the GNCCF 18 show. Top Team!















Tricky Year

It's been a tricky year as my Dad's health started to go down hill rapidly at the beginning of the year
and sadly he died on the 12th October. I have had to take a back seat with regards to my textile practice and have not been able to accept teaching workshops or shows since June 2018
I  have however started to create work again this week starting with the third hand woven piece for
@trouble_at_millhouse & independent fashion store-Made to measure & alteration services stocking guest designers from cloth to clay and beginning to gather ideas together for my next collection for Knitting and stitching shows 2019.

Temporary Space

Eaststreetarts & Kate Whitehead
The temporary space I have been given by East Street Arts for a month at 55, Albion Street Leeds to exhibit my work and run community weave workshops is taking shape. I have hung my textile pieces, built large frame looms and displayed pieces to make eyes happy. There has been great interest so far, positive feedback, interesting conversations and new friends made. The space will be open on Friday 10th Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th August  11.30 - 5.30 to weave, chat and enjoy.
