Exhibition On Brownsea Island

I have now set up my first ever exhibition of students work on Brownsea Island in the visitors centre. The work was carried out last year when I took a number of students over to the island and we stayed one weekend in October at the South Shore Lodge. They collected various bits and pieces including leaves and driftwood and produced some excellent work. This is the work on display. The feedbaqck so far has been tremendous and everyone has been giving positive comments on the work they have veiwed. We are going to do the same thing again this May and later in October. If anyone wishes to come over to the island and stay at the South Shore Lodge and complete a textile piece they can contact me and I will give them full details. However, the May course is coming up very soon and if you want to go you will need to let me know ASAP and forward the money to secure your place. My phone number is 01202 731562.

Finally I have got the picture where I want it, what a hassle for my first time, however I do expect to get better at this.

My first posting

I have set up this blog to display my textile work. Here are some examples.

This is based on an image of a burnt out car which I have manipulate using computer software and then stitched in the form of three panels.

Well I hope this is set up now after several hours of trying. I have yet to change the photograph on the site but as of yet I am still trying to learn this and how I get it all to work.
