"Curiously Enough" ....
new work by Lizzie Weir for the forthcoming exhibition at Ruskin Mill in June. I am continuing the theme of Curious Drawers and Curiouser?... and am working on a 'lost' dress pattern that has now been found! My Grandma made the dress for my Mum when she was a baby and now I am re-making the pattern, following her original drawing and beautiful copperplate handwritten instructions. I have hand printed, embroidered and embellished all the fabric and am now in the process of cutting the pattern (bit scary!)

New and exciting work from Louise Watson...
Another month, another bag for the Brunel Broderers using the fabric from the tailors shop.
The intention is to make one each for each borderer!
This work is for the Broderers 2013 exhibition entitled "Suited"...more to be revealed as the work progresses, each Broderer has an amount of fabric, fastenings, findings, buttons and suchlike from a fabulous tailors shop in Woodmancote that had long lay dormant. We all intend to manipulate, alter, bring to life the wonderful fabrics that tell such stories and hold such history.
Louise has been working on bags, of varying shapes, sizes and patterns, these bags will go on journey between now and the exhibition, who knows where and who with...

My latest work, remembering my lovely Boxer Tiggy who died last Autumn. We used to walk through this field past the oak tree.
Continuing my exploration of organdie I am beginning to manipulate the surface by using the grain of the fabric to create movement and distort the surface.
This can be seen in TFSW's 'Mapping the Future: where are you now' exhibition at The Brewhouse Taunton later this month. Photo by Silvia
