At last a blogger

I have finally been persuaded that having my own blog would be a good idea.  I have been creating art textiles for some time and the problem is where to start.  So, as an introduction, I will show you details of a recent design for a blind for a double height window that would allow light in but provide a degree of privacy both during the day and at night.  I used paper lamination to abstract parts of photographs of places known to the client.  It was made into a Roman blind. Here is the closed blind in situ.

Detail of part of the blind. 

More recently I have been working towards pieces that will be submitted to the Taking Textiles Further exhibition that runs during November at Art Van Go - see poster below
