Festival of Quilts - some close ups of the TOH gallery

Olga Prins Lukowski - Juggling Keep Them In The Air. Lots of people wanted to know how the background mesh was made.  Olga coloured a mesh used in the plastering process and bought from a builders yard.




Kintsugi Vessels by Mirjam Pet-Jacobs.










Counting the Days II by Els Van Baarle. A close up of one of four pieces.



Sue Stone. Some Things Never Change (detail)



Alicia Merrett - Distortion Fields (detail)



Jette Clover, Silent Language 





Bobby Britnell - room installation showing work by Bobby and her son








Michala Gyetvai,  L'Apres-midi d'un faune. (detail)

Susan Lenz, Wall of Keys.  Susan arrived on the Tuesday, and we didn't which may have made her job on the Wednesday even harder.  She started hammering in the keys at 9am and didn't stop until late in the evening. We left just after six and had to leave her to it.  She didn't stop, not ever, not even to eat or drink. Amazing energy. Susan was also vital to Festival taking part in workshops and discussions in the theatre. We loved her energy and fresh enthusiasm.  (Thank you Susan - you're a star!)

Just look at that huge bag of keys that she lugged with her all the way from the States.







About half way
through....




And finally finished! We just loved it.




Jenni Dutton......And here's those Dementia Darnings that caused quite a stir




Sandra Meech, Spring on the Levels II. My apologies for the image quality - new iPhone to battle with!  I loved this and thought the detail was staggeringly beautiful.

Portrait in parts

For this portrait I'm starting off by using some stencils and stamps to make a background. I especially like the stencil with the jumble...
