Sew On and So Forth

Two years have gone swiftly and it is time for another exhibition - we wonder why we agree to do these as the day approaches for hanging a new show, but by the end of day one we can see how amazing our work looks presented together.

The Weavers Gallery in Ledbury is a quirky space, and it can be a challenge to position things well.  This year a flight of birds are scattered around, perching on beams and in amongst other exhibits.  We started making these little birds at our Summerhouse at Blue Ginger Gallery, and have continued making them since. Some of them needed encouragement to stay in their new perches.

There were lots of bags of materials scattered around as the display was organised, forming impromptu sculptures wherever we looked.

 We followed completion of the hang with an excellent meal at the The Talbot Hotel, where two hours of laughter renenergised the tired crew.

Show Ready Plumage

"It's all a bit quiet in here. Where is everyone? 
Ahh, busy getting ready for next week's, 'Sew On & So Forth' exhibition at The Weavers Gallery in Ledbury. 
I'd better go and plump the old feathers up as well I suppose!"
