I'm so excited as new materials have arrived that I want to play with. I have a whole range of silk products and by-products that I can use in a textile piece and I am researching how others have used them creatively. 

Back to the Beginning

Now begins the last part of my Foundation Degree - a group exhibition with the title 'A Sense of Place'. I find this stage in the process exhausting as my head fills with all manner of thoughts and possibilities about how I can respond to this. My initial ideas are connected with the histories of Macclesfield (where I live and study) and Castlefield (where the exhibition will be held). Images of cotton, silk, coal, canals, and mills jumble in my mind and the colours of black and white dominate. Follow me as I explore these ideas in my experimenting and creations....
