After our disappointment of preparing for exhibitions last year that had to be postponed, this year will be a whirlwind !
Bristol Guild have offered us a date April into May,Newark Park is fully open and we will be there in June and to round off we will once again be at UWE in August.We will be very busy bees preparing new work ,this gives a frisson of excitement but also apprehension as the months tick by so very alarmingly.
Keep checking back for how we progress.
The period up to Christmas is often a fallow one as other things take precedence.Viv has been busy cataloguing her Miao pieces for eventual handover to the museum.She brought along several as this will be one of our last opportunities to handle them.
The work is so very small and intricate that we viewed them through a magnifying glass.
We wondered how they managed to fold the tiny triangles .
The piece below on the left is bound with raffia to pleat the fabric for the indigo dyed skirts.
The colours of the exquisite embroidery sing out
and are so finely stitched.
