Liz ,too had found it difficult to get back into working and admitted she had not stitched most days as she does usually. However, she has set herself quite some challenge as she has several exhibitions she will be taking part in besides those with GTA.She has a solo at The Crypt Gallery in St Ives from 17-23May this year.She will exhibit work inspired by her many visits to the area, including these.They are based on the colours seen in the rooftops and include lichen circles.
Later this year she will be exhibiting with Janice Gunner and Maggie Relph at UWE.The theme is "African Odyssey' She has used cloth from Africa sourced through the African Shop for many years.
This time she has been attempting to create her own mud cloth, the one above uses Forest of Dean ochres and below liquid charcoal both with acrylic medium.She is going to experiment with pigments she collects to see what will ensue.
She continues to go to bookbinding and this latest little one is a telescopic book, precise folding to get it right.
An inveterate collector of books these appeared at Christmas and will be added to her large collection.Something to pick up and give pleasure when other pastimes do not.
