Drumming and Textiles

Last weeks workshops for The Ow Bist Project with The Qube Oswestry were full of colour and energy. On Tuesday the group took inspiration from Autumn leaves and mandalas to create richly colourful pieces of work. Then on Wednesday morning and afternoon, I teamed up with fellow Ow Bist Tutor, Ade Powell, for a day of drumming and textiles. While half of the group filled the room with rhythm and energy, the other half used mark making and resist techniques on lengths of calico to respond to the sounds of the drumming. All in beautiful settings around Oswestry.

And with the end of The Birds of Wales Exhibition at Oriel Ynys Mon, Anglesey, I said goodbye to this tale and two other pieces as they went off to new homes.

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.
