Weaving the Century


                                              Untitled - August 2012

Anyone with the chance to go to Edinburgh should try and see the Dovecote's centenary exhibition "Weaving the Century: Tapestry from Dovecote Studios 1912 - 2012" 13th July - 7th October 2012. Go here for more details.

Here's the finished piece. I've entered it for the R.D.S. crafts competition though was sad to see that they no longer have a tapestry category - it's just 'weaving' now.  Tells you something doesn't it...

The following is the blurbette I submitted with it.

"My work is currently inspired by walking the lanes near my home - observing the changes the seasons bring, reflecting on those who have walked the same paths, enjoying the meditative process of putting one foot in front of the other."

Until 24th May this piece is on show along with work by other Montsalesian artists at the tower.

w.i.p. at last

It's been a long time coming I know. There is a street in Villefranche called Impasse des Tisserands which translates as Weaver's Dead End and that's pretty much where I have been for too long now. More soon...

Fancy a holiday here? My brother and sister-in-law are offering b&b at their lovely farm near Kenmare, Co. Kerry, Ireland. More pictures and info here.
