The Liberated Quilt Exhibition Bilston, UK

My textile installation 'Bitter Harvest' which is dyed on the wall ( I call it vertical performance dyeing), is part of a group show at Bilston Craft Gallery in the UK. The exhibitors are agroup of international quilt/textile artists exhibiting under the group name ' Throughourhands' and the show has been organised by Linda Kemshall and Annabel Rainbow.

I would have loved to have been at the opening but it was not possible at this time. Although I might get to the UK and Europe in October this year, but that doesn't coincide with either of the shows I will be in this year!
The vertical dyeing pieces plus a new and as yet unfinished piece will be shown at Festival of Quilts in August. I am grateful to ThroughOurHands for making it possible for me to show my performance dyeing pieces in the UK.
In the meantime I should be making the piece for this show, the idea is in my head but house renovations ( kitchen, dining room, lounge) plus preparing my mother's house for sale keeps me out of the studio.
