Liz and I spent the day in Stroud visiting the textile festival .A highlight was Alice Fox's "Tidelines" at the Lansdown Hall.She had used objects collected on beaches to rust,weave,print and emboss on paper and fabric.The results were beautiful,quiet and gentle.We were there in time to hear her speak and were impressed with her generosity in sharing what she did .Here are a few glimpses........
We also visited the Museum in the Park to see "Shadow and Line.
