I’ll be exhibiting my new Jellyfish journey cyanotypes and mini-banners from the #SayItWithStitchGY project at the Space of Waste exhibition at Skippings Gallery, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk from 24th April to 1st May. Plus, I’ll be running a mini-banner drop-in on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th April, anytime from 10am-2pm for £3!
This spring, I’ll be running a charcoal sketching walk & draw session at Burgh Castle with a Broads Authority guide. The session on Friday 11th May at 10:30am-12:30pm, will creatively explore the Roman ruins and take inspiration from the surrounding landscape of Breydon Waters. The session is delivered as part of Waveney & Blyth Arts’ programme of workshops and ‘Water, Mills & Marshes: The Broads Landscape Partnership’ (Broads Authority). Plus, the walk will also be part of the Broads Outdoors Festival taking place from 28th April-13th May.

I can’t wait to take part in my first Makers Month in March! I’ll be running two textile arts workshops – a drop-in to create protest banners and a bookable workshop to create an applique patch about ‘YOU’! The free drop-in session on Tuesday 13th March takes inspiration from the Craftivism movement to take a gentle, accessible approach to protest. For the bookable session on Thursday 15th March, take inspiration from passions in your own life, to create a unique textile art patch. To find out more info, visit the Makers Month project page.
This winter, I’m working on new artwork for my upcoming solo exhibition at Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes, North Norfolk. The exhibition will be open daily from 7th to 20th March 2018. Alongside my new work, there will be older works such as ‘Threads of Summer‘ and ‘Reclaimed by the Wild‘.
To follow the progress of my new work, take a look at my Instagram feed for updates.
I’ll be running a mini-series of textile craft workshops at Skippings Gallery, Great Yarmouth in November. At the Monday evening session, learn needle felting and on the Sunday workshop, we’ll be exploring Craftivism (craft + activism). The sessions are supported by Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust and can be booked directly through me. For more info, go to the project page.
I’m very pleased to have my ‘Threads of Summer’ series and article featured in HAND/EYE Magazine.
