Went to a very wet, windy, cold and very muddy Oxford to see Art in Action. Such a shame for the exhibitors as the weather obviously affects the turnout.
I suppose that the only plus side is the fact that you do get a chance to see things up closer with not so many people around.
It was really good to see the work of some really well known textile artists up close. And it’s always inspiring to see pieces of work from all the different disciplines. Just wish I had the wherewithal to buy some of these pieces.
But I did manage to buy a few bits in what they call ‘the market’.
This product caught my eye:
Along with a couple of other things which I will show when I have had chance to play with them. Plus some more wooden blocks to go along with the other hundred. Well, not really that many, but you know what I mean. :)
There was also a Mexican Art tent and I couldn’t resist buying this bag – a combination of blue silk fabric and cerise plastic. Makes me feel really ‘arty’. *LOL*
As for my own work, haven’t had much time this weekend but did manage to make a start on this one surface.
I’m speaking singular here because although there are 7 samples these are all from the same basic technique just with different finishes.
