I am really pleased to have been selected to exhibit  three felt sculptures with the Pure Arts group at this this venue. The PowderMills Hotel is a magical place!

Originally the site of a famous Gunpowder Works it was reputed to have made the finest gunpowder in Europe during the Napoleonic Wars. It has now been skilfully converted into a fascinating Hotel. The PowderMills is situated just outside the historic town of Battle and adjoins the famous Battlefield of 1066.

There is a wide range of Art and Art media by local artists – it’s well worth a visit!

Patterns and architecture in Hanoi

I am just at the end of a wonderful holiday in Vietnam and am waiting to go to the airport for my return flight to London via Paris.

During the last few days in Hanoi I have been entranced by the variety of architecture in the city and see lots of design potential for textile art and surface pattern design. Watch my website: Textilematters.co.uk for developments!!

 

Flowers in Da Nang

The flowers are everywhere in Da Nang, Vietnam and the colours and patterns are inspirational and I can’t wait start designing!

Hoi An Vietnam

I am posting from Vietnam where I am visiting my son and daughter – both teaching English in Hanoi. It’s a short 10 day stay, but full of new experiences

We have spent the weekend in Hoi An at the beautiful beaches by day, and imageevenings spent drinking fresh fruit cocktails and eating amazing food. Smiling and welcoming Vietnamese people have made our days a joy and I am already planning our next trip!!

The Tailor streets are bursting with fabrics and I have had several dresses made to measure – more images of this experience tomorrow when my images have downloaded!

It is all bringing back memories and sensations of my childhood in Dar-es-Salam – not Africa per se, but the banana trees, mangoes, pineapple, drinking green coconuts, beaches, flame trees and Bougainvillea are the same….
