In preparation for next weeks Jubilee celebrations Cath Kidston Bath invited me to work with a group of 16 lovely ladies last night to embroider Jubilee inspired handkerchiefs. It was a great way to spend an evening!
The exhibition preparation is well under way and the pieces have arrived in Bath from New York so we are pleased to have them in the country. We have set up a website for the project atwww.foldingcosmosbath.wordpress.com
Our flyers have also arrived; we have met some lovely people on our journey distributing them so far…..
The Cath Kidston event I worked at in February was a success, it was a great evening of making, eating cake and shopping; a lovely environment to work in.
This is a photo of the amazing cakes we had at the event, they were lovely!
Here are some photos of the Folding Cosmos exhibition I am organising to bring to Bath from Japan. The exhibition will launch on the 27th April and run until the 5th May 2012. During this time there will be the opportunity to attend Japanese tea ceremonies and contribute to our peace tree with origami and messages. I will exhibit textile and book pieces along side the established Japanese exhibition which I will develop in response to a period of research based on the tea ceremony, traditional Japanese dress and symbolism in design. I have started this research and am finding fascinating, can’t wait to start developing the work!

Have spent today having fun with artist Bethan Sheff and two groups of children (years 5 & 6), experimenting with batik. The children produced some fab designs, which they are going to turn in to bags.
