I've been stocking up on new materials and got some lovely wool tops from World of Wool. Lots of natural colours and different breeds to try, I particularly liked the Oatmeal colour Blue Faced Leicester, and the Grey Norwegian. Also got myself some different gauge needles to experiment with. Can't wait to make some new work with them.

The Art of Childsplay

My collection is currently on display in the main gallery of New Brewery Arts, Cirencester, in an exhibition called The Art of Childsplay.

"This show investigates the work of contemporary artists and makers who create pieces which show ‘playfulness’ or have a ‘childlike’ quality. All the exhibitors are inspired by play, respond to children’s stories, refer to childhood memories or make work with children in mind. The exhibition will present a stimulating world for all to enjoy."

The other work on show includes a range of Donna Wilson's knitted creatures, and Samantha Bryan's wonderful Victorian gadgetry inspired Fairies.

Here are some photos of my work in the exhibition...
