I bought some barkcloth pieces from Bobbie Britnell on Saturday and have been experimenting. 
 Some printing to start with, which I plan to stitch into and couch - after cutting up and repiecing ?!?! The uneven surface adds texture to printing but would not be ideal for very detailed work.

Open Studios 2014

Great news - I have been invited to take part in Warwickshire Open Studios again this summer and will be at Ragley Hall Gallery and Studios near Alcester.  It's a stately home in lovely grounds with woodland walks, tearoom, adventure playground and so much to see and do.  The gallery is in an old stable block and is run by Dawn Harris.  There will be about 9 artists during the fortnight, so I think we'll have some fun.  More details later ....

The "R" word

I've gone and done it - I am no longer a wage slave.  How scary it feels at the moment.  Who knows what lies ahead?  Wish me luck, dear fellow-bloggers!
