A Sunday road trip in Buckinghamshire
I picked up a brochure for Bucks art weeks https://www.bucksartweeks.org.uk/ while I took a whistle stop tour of Oxfordshire with my dear friend Ann back in May. I did a quick flick and noticed there were plenty of textile artists exhibiting so definitely worth a trip over the boarder (I reach Bucks within 2 miles of my house so not so far to travel).
First stop was Milton Keynes to visit Mix3d Stitch [ https://www.facebook.com/mix3dstitch/ ] a collaborative partnership of three different styles of textiles by three very talented ladies…Yvonne Elliott, Jane Charles and Hilary Grayson. As it was the only place in Milton Keynes on my list I felt it only sensible to combine with a trip to IKEA (more plastic storage boxes) and Costco for more cake ingredients and coffee for my workshops and social stitchers!
Textile Art is well represented at Oxfordshire Art Weeks this year.
Oxfordshire Art Weeks has started, I am so excited to be exhibiting for the first time and looking forward to seeing lots of art this month!
Last week I spent Monday in a state of panic and frustration as I put the finishing touches to three pieces of textile art – Torch, In want of a Wife and Tulips to exhibit at the Heseltine Gallery which is hosting an selected exhibition of work from artists who live and work in North Oxfordshire and South Northants.
