EXHIBITION – Knit and stitch show, Alexandra Palace, Oct 2012

Visit to London to the Knitting and Stitch show October 2012. Always ends up a very expensive day out but in return for my financial spend I am also rewarded with new ideas from seeing the work of others. Far too many photos to show here but I have posted some that are relevant to the Textiles from found materials section.

Hazel Bruce - 62 Group. Wonderful textile panels from collage materials.

Lyn Settrington - Part of Threads - very interesting as these are "pouches" ( not sure of the correct technique) made from plastic bags. What was interesting about this is that it wasn't until I got home and looked at my photo from a distance, without anyone in the way, did I see the message. See next photo.

Lyn Settrington - "Been shopping" made from plastic bags - quite appropriate for my chosen message for textiles from found materials.

I, unfortunately, did not make a name of the artist for these samples but I liked the experimental approach of using our rubbish for art - it wasn't appreciated by all as I saw lots of husbands walking away shaking their heads in wonder !
