New Works

The Knitting and Stitching Show

I was delighted to be asked by Andy Ross, GlobalYell if I would join him at The Knitting and Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace, London.  What a 5 days it was!  The interest in Shetland was amazing and we hope that many of the people who came to our stand will come and visit us in Sellafirth, Yell.

New Work

I have added a new image gallery showing my recent paintings inspired by the huge skies of Shetland.  The work can be viewed at my studio in The Shetland Gallery.

SWRI Textile Book Workshop

The weekend was a great success and I hope that the ladies took away lots of ideas from it.  Seven hours of hard work on Saturday and three hours on Sunday morning resulted in everyone completing the task and very lively textile books were produced.  Melting plastic proved to be a popular technique and the only guideline was ‘there are no rules’!  I hope the ladies enjoyed the experience as much as I did.

Workshop

I will be running a residential ‘Textile Book’ workshop for the SWRI  on the weekend of the 2nd-4th March at The Sumburgh Hotel, Shetland.
