Apologies for the lateness of this post.
We welcomed Karen Babayan to our meeting on 17th June (meeting moved because of Appleby Horse Fair). She gave a very interesting talk about her work and how her Persian heritage has informed her work. Karen is multi-talented and as well as a being a great artist is a novelist and actor. She has exihibited work which has included screen printing, heat flocking, photography, reverse printing, etc. Here are some photos from after her talk.
Again more apologies, I forgot my camera. However for our meeting on 1st July we had a show and tell of members work. A great display (sorry again) of work. City and Guilds Year 1 and 2 portfolios, fine traditional pulled thread, work from the Lady Anne costume (detached buttonhole stitched flowers on a sleeve), etc.
The next meeting is the 2nd September where Isobel Hall will be talking about texture with cocoon strippings. All welcome.
I feel that there should be a photo to finish. I attended a workshop with Sandra Kendall in Lancaster where we looked at lichen for inspiration. Here are some photos of the attendees work.
