DIS/ rupt

The  exhibition DIS/rupt by THE TEXTILE STUDY GROUP has now previewed at the Minerva Arts Centre in Llanidloes, Powys and has been enjoying a week of visitors to the venue.

This touring exhibition examines the major disruption in our lives, from migration to rising sea levels, from wars to deforestation......and so much more. It is a most thought provoking exhibition which tackles the less 'pretty' aspects of living in our modern world. It is well worth a visit and some of the exhibits can not fail to bring a tear to your eye. 

"a most thought provoking and touching exhibition......well worth the visit and I will be coming back"

Paper Lampshades

Last week we had our first of the visiting tutors to Moor Hall, Jennifer Collier, making beautiful paper lampshades. The course was reduced to just one day, yet all students completed the tasks at hand with amazing results.
Feast your eyes on these. I have tried to take images from different viewpoints and with the light on and off.

 Thank you to Jennifer and the group for responding so very well. Gorgeous results in just the day.

Everyone needs to experience a course with Ruth at least once their life's and if you have not done so by now, this is your opportunity. Three glorious days spent, saturated in colour, although  Ruth will be working initially only with a neutral palette to create a variety of stitched surfaces. But then watch as these effects soak up the colour with dye painted on top to create rich glowing stitched pieces.

'Stitched surfaces to dye for'                    £195 for 3 days

Book  ON-LINE  or send me an  EMAIL  for further information

Thanks for reading all my news. Will catch up again soon.
