I’m writing this on the 5th August and Festival of Quilts starts next week on the 11th. Yes, thats today.
So as my work goes on display today at 10, so this blog post should publish at the same time.
Forgotten Women of the Land
Silk, cotton, paint, silk thread, printing ink, paper.
Batik, hand and machine stitch, printing.
Inspiration / artists statement:
The forgotten voices.
The forgotten hardships and pain.
10,000 men died on Flodden Battlefield.
Women of the land.
Forgotten in the history books.
It won’t be to everyones taste as a “quilt” or even as a fabric / mixed media hanging.
I really, really don’t let this affect me anymore.
Post lotus ink I have changed, with a very different view of the world and acquaintances.
