No luck in Wales

So, the National Botanic Garden of Wales were not interested. Ah well, never mind, it might have been a bit too much what with trying to find homes for everything and weaving and decluttering the house and garden.

Everyone keeps asking if I am going to have a rest now. Well, I’d love to but at the same time I want to keep some momentum going or it would be easy to just let things slide and life would get too much in the way.

So I am still weaving and below is the picture of the latest piece. It is a bit mad and also liable to collapse if handled roughly. It was woven all in one go but the curly bit is supplementary warp which was wound round and then re inserted into the weaving. Does that make sense?

photo 1I am about to start some small flat pieces ready for the exhibition in December. They are based on some images from Waverley Abbey which is a ruin near Farnham. That sounds very landscape-ish which they aren’t, think close ups of marks on stones from the marks made by the stonemason right through to 21st century graffiti.
