Collect 2011

Just had a great day out at Collect 2011, lots of great makers at the Saatchi gallery. I loved the glass work by Steffen Dam which was very beautiful, the work at collect was his study of fossils and plants which he describes as frozen extracts of chaos to be watched undisturbed.

I also loved the delicate textile piece by Anne G loland.


As textile artist it is always very disappointing that there is so little textile work at collect I always hope there will be more and there never is. However there were also a couple of textile pieces by Matthew Harris and as always the inspiring embroidery of Alice Kettle.

After a lovely morning spent looking at the work of contemporary makers what a better way to end the day than lunch with friends.

Living Crafts

I had a great day out at living crafts yesterday with fellow HVAF members Jan Clark, Linda Gifford, June Faulkner and Tessa Barnes. The day started of rather quietly and unfortunately very cold. I have got used to the sun shine so consequently was very underdressed and couldn't stop shivering. Luckily the sun made an appearance in the afternoon and brought lots of visitors with it. Living crafts is on over the weekend so if you go visit HVAF.
