Beautiful Blues

Glorious summer day!

I held an Indigo workshop for a young talented artist, Connie.
Her paintings are astonishing.
She is one of the prize winners of Black Swan Arts Young Open 2016.
The winners were given one-to-one workshop with a professional artist or craftspeople as a part of their prize.

It was a perfect day for indigo dyeing.

After the workshop I dyed my yarn as well.
I had series of beautiful blues and green, onion orange over-dyed with indigo.

Connie is form Hong Kong. She wants to carry on her study here.
She is a great artist already but there are still a lot to learn.
Good luck Connie!

Salisbury Contemporary Craft & Heritage Festival

Salisbury Contemporary Craft & Heritage Festival 2015 was over.
Over 100 top UK contemporary craftspeople got together at Salisbury Cathedral Close. We showed and sold our work.

The venue was next to the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral.
Visitors must enjoy the high skilled and innovative work. I’m very proud I was one of them.

9月5日、6日の両日、Salisbury Cathedral CloseでSalisbury Contemporary Craft & Heritage Festivalが開催されました。
多くの作家が集まり、その技、工夫を凝らした作品群が各スタンドに並びました。
工芸品と呼ぶにふさわしい作品が多く出展され、会場に集まった方々も存分に楽しまれたのではないかと思います。
そうした工芸品作家の仲間入りをさせていただき、出展させていただきました。

Here are some images of my stand.
