Plastic flowers for Nature in Art workshops

I will be running a workshop making flowers from plastic waste. I am drawing attention to the amount of unnecessary plastic bags in our environment, often found in trees!!


For Nature in Art I am looking at mycelium; the threadlike roots of mushrooms and fungi.
This was the spore print of a toadstool left on the cover of my sketchbook!

Nature In Art invitations

Work in progress trying out ideas for Exhibition invitations..
Pen and ink drawing with machine embroidery

I like the concept of 'back of the envelope' quick sketch drawings to capture an idea!

Strawberry Thief

This is my version of The Strawberry Thief by William Morris. My real strawberry thief this summer was a blackbird but his is a little more colourful.  Merry Christmas to one and all.
