MOVING ON; A PERSONAL VIEW
This lecture discusses the trials and tribulations of moving on in one’s own work, developing new pathways and seeking new horizons. It examines ways in which my work has developed and changed, and the thoughts and ideas that help it to happen. Such thought processes and approaches might spark new ideas in others looking for a change of direction.
COLLABORATIVE ART EXCHANGES
This talk follows the creative journeys made through exchanging work with four designer-makers – a painter, two embroiderers and a land artist. We repeatedly swapped work, back and forth, each responding to one another by adding to the pieces. It shows the incremental developments and the resulting works, and also tracks the challenges and choices arising during this exciting project.
DRAWN TO STITCH
This talk considers qualities of line – sharp and crisp, soft and diffused, continuous and broken, raised and recessed etc. It looks at observational drawing and mark-making with other art techniques, in order to interpret a wide variety of lines. It then traces the path from the art work to the stitched trials and includes work and thoughts of other artists.
