It has been a while since my last post of taking a plunge building a website and applying for new commissioned artworks and collaborations. Recently I applied to http://eastdurhamcreates.co.uk to work and collaborate with http://www.cirquebijou.co.uk umbrella project for Lumiere Festival in Durham 18-21 November http://www.lumiere-festival.com.
Let me just say it was brilliant! a worth while experience meeting new people collaborating with communities and being part of Cirque Bijou not many people can say they danced down North Road with a l.e.d umbrella. :PHOTO CREDIT: NIC KANE. A few weeks before I applied for some of my Textiles products to sell in Hartlepool Gallery where I had that degree show many moons ago… https://www.destinationhartlepool.com/see-and-do/attraction/hartlepool-art-gallery.html They shown Interest which meant I had a full week on my sewing machine that I have just fixed myself thats another long story.
