V and A Visit

Not been on here lately but working hard!
Last week I saw the Diaghilev exhibition at the V&A, great experience full of colour and drama.
I recommend it, also the Raphael tapestries. One can really appreciate the colour, texture and warm tactile qualities of cloth. A once in a life time opportunity I think.

Corinne - New Work

Having been ill since half way through our last exhibition some pieces of my work never made it to Stroud!
Again based on the Grimm's fairy tales these cotton reel poems tell of the sorrows behind the stories.
Each little poem is written on hand-stitched calico that wraps around a cotton reel and fastens with a button.

Have just finished polishing the chest of drawers - that beautiful little jewellers cabinet - with some beeswax and begun to fill it ready for Monday for the Brunel Broderers Curious Drawers at The Curve Gallery, Churchdown.
I am guessing all the BB's are busy preparing too!
