The felting workshops are over for a while and I'm busy preparing for my first
solo exhibition to be held at Quarr Abbey Art Gallery, near Ryde on the
Isle of Wight, just after Easter.
The exhibition is called STRICTLY COMMERCIAL and features illustrations,
collage and craftwork from my published books...
So not a piece of felt in sight!
I worked in children's publishing for over 30 years, free-lancing as an illustrator
and writer, and worked on many publications - non-fiction and fiction, craft books,
pop-ups, puzzles, magazines. There will be lots of original artwork on show
and for sale, plus recently published books and cards.
The exhibition is from Thursday 20th to Tuesday 25th April, open daily from
10.30 am to 4.30pm with FREE admission and I will be at the gallery everyday.
There's another chance to see it again in the summer from the
27th July to 1st August.
I've held a number of feltmaking workshops at Quarr Abbey.
It's an amazing place to visit with wonderful buildings and gardens,
that create a unique peaceful atmosphere.
I'm thrilled to be holding the exhibition at this very special place.
There's lots more pictures and information on my other blog...
And normal felt making will resume after the show when I'll be posting
up new workshop dates for June & July...
