On Friday 4th October, 2pm to 6pm, and again on Saturday 5th October, 10am to 6pm, at The Old Sorting House, High Street, Bottesford NG31 0AA, PollyWhistle and Vanessa Stone present Belvoir Angels interpreted through textiles, applique, embroidery and paper-cutting.
Vanessa Stone is possibly best known for her paper cut work but actually has a background in textiles and design. For this exhibition she has revisited her textile roots as well as experimenting with scale in paper cut, going from tiny to extremely large to interpret the Angels.
PollyWhistle artist Jane Millum has incorporated her usual story based art dolls and applique approaches in her interpretations but also some more intricate needle work through embroidery and English paper piecing in silk.
Both artists will be exhibiting other work too and on hand to discuss the project and talk through sketchbooks and prototypes.
In addition Jane will be running a Belvior Angel textile sign workshop from 10 to 1pm and Vanessa a Folky Stencilled Fabric Workshop from 2pm to 5pm on the Saturday. Click on the links for more info or book here: www.theoldsortinghouse.com
