Winter Solstice – precious daylight and an honoured long night… A time to think of peace and connection, the rhythm of our world, and wishes and hopes and the strength of togetherness …
Solace – a project by India Knight
Have a look at this post by India Knight
Is it fluttering there still, my pennant – together entwined with others from around the world and gently moving in the breeze? I look out across the sky tonight …
(..thin cloth from an almost exhausted indigo dye bath embroidered with a single word in french knots – a stitch which for me which is about my language to represent prayers / thoughts)
A working studio week..
Cool Chapel – beautiful light with sun, shadows and dapples
The quiet of us working – and the regular lying down on yoga mats to rest and reflect
My ‘delicate rhythm’ work – perfect setting
I have been filming the work – it is a wonderfully liberating and creative experience to respond to a space for a week, to attune to the work within it and have the freedom to develop – all our work is evolving as the days go on
I filmed the pieces outside strung from the portico entrances, moving gently in the breeze..
Will put clip of film up in the next few days…
A couple of weeks ago I spent a fascinating day with Brenda Miller and Belinda Downes – do have a look at the links!
Belinda has this wonderful shop in Wotton-under-Edge and is a talented and creative textile artist and book illustrator. Paper and Cotton is a work of art in itself!
Brenda, who works in film, installation, textiles and research, invited us to participate in her latest work – a film conversation about creative processes…
We stitched and talked….. more later as Brenda develops her work
