The last few weeks have been interesting and busy with the Worn Threads exhibition...which also translates as weariness for me. So, I haven't been able to spend much time computering or blogging.
I am so glad for the team who helped with getting the show organised and hanging up.
I did get some photos of the Worn Threads work when we had finished hanging it at Lady Sew and Sew last week.
This is a bit from the back of our catalogue about our group.
I think we had around 30 artists involved for this exhibition. Lady Sew and Sew have developed part of their warehouse into a Workshop/gallery space - shifting from one to the other. They are hoping to do more exhibitions. The space is a little eclectic, with uplighters and doors to contend with, but with the variety of work we have from our group, we worked out places for everything.
A few overall photos here.
You can see my piece based on a Kamlaika to the left beyond the red dress.
Each item was inspired by a garment or accessory.
Some of the stories about the inspiration garments are really moving.
Jane Glennie designed a wonderful catalogue.
She also put an image of the inspiration garment
on the card with the artists name.
You can visit the exhibition:
