Ow Bist Project with the Qube, Oswestry

I have had another fabulous time running textile workshops for The Ow Bist Project this week. The Project is run by the Qube in Oswestry and gives people in rural areas the opportunity of joining in on a range of creative workshops.

At one of the workshops someone shared their collection of exquisite textiles which included a Shamans robe from China. Inspiration aplenty!

 

 

The project was made possible with a grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

If you would like more information on the project, go to http://www.qube-oca.org.uk and look for Special Projects.

Chelford Embroiderers` Guild

Thank you to members of the Chelford Embroiderers` Guild for the warm welcome at a recent workshop. Some wonderful cups, saucers and bowls were stitched and moulded.

Still time to see this stitched bird and figure at The Qube, Oswestry until the 1st November.

Home sweet home

Happy stitching …

The Qube Open

These stitched birds are part of a piece shortlisted for this years Open Competition at the Qube, Oswestry. The exhibition runs from 11th September to 1st November.

The theme Journey is reflected in the piece through the suggested movement of the birds, text and in its transient nature. Most of the birds are not fixed so will go on to be part of their own narratives. There are similarities but each one is an individual.
