This is a photo of the front of one of my landscape bags in the Brunel Broderers current exhibition at the Lansdown Gallery in Stroud. The exhibition is on all next week, except Monday, and closes on Sunday 19 May. All the work is made from bolts of cloth given to us by a tailor closing his workshop.
At the weekend I went on a two day course with Gizella Warburton at Hawkwood near Stroud. We spent our time drawing with collage outside, painting fabrics and papers and stitching. Our final pieces were wrapped round papier mâché cylinders that we made. This painterly approach was way outside my comfort zone and challenging but good fun all the same.
