Textiles in Focus

Nickie and I had a lovely day at Textiles in Focus, there is such a lovely atmosphere at this event. First stop was to re-visit the O2 exhibition (  saw it twice last year when it was at Hyde Hall)..
On Marion's workshop we made a little stand up figure using Jet FX and using the Ballet Russes exhibition that has been at the V&A.  I have some more work to do on it, but it might be something that Kezzy can adapt and use in her art work.  Lunch and then time for demonstrating.  Although the Dawn Thorne lecture was going on we still had a steady flow of people showing interest in our work.
Time for shopping, a look at the  Fibrefusion exhibition and then home-exhausted from all that talking!!.

I was very restrained with my spending  as there was nothing I needed, but I couldn't resist these strips of fabric from the African Shop.

You're right - my sister and I were chatting on the phone today and we agreed it's our favourite show - small but perfectly formed!

I like the look of those fabrics Sharne. Do you know what fibre they are?? Your day sounds very interesting. You are doing some really creative things all the time. I love to keep watching to see what happens next.
