ExTex - The Finale

Well it's over.  A nine month investment into creativity.  9 weekends of learning and playing finished with an exhibition at the Fashion & Embroidery Show at the NEC.

We had a fabulous exhibiton space and many visitors who made super comments about our work. Kim chose a selection of items from each of the 10 students to make up this amazing array of work.   She chose several f mine that were featured in my last ExTex post.

My final piece was a set of books hanging as a mobile.

The books mostly moved about except when I tried to film them!

And of course you can't go to a show and not spend money. Well, my plan was to go and NOT spend money.  But inevitably I did. 

I don't usually buy these blocks but this one had my name on it.

And then! I watched a Hilary Beattie video and was able to do this with the blue foamy thingy.

I'm really looking forward to working with this block.  I'll report back!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Fabulous exhibition of work. I really enjoyed seeing it. Have fun with the printing

  2. well done on completing the course and having your work exhibited. That must have been exciting. I anticipate buying wood blocks when I go to India in December. Good idea to put them in the foamy and make another stamp.


I would love you to leave me an encouraging comment. Don't forget to put your name. I love to know who is commenting. Thank you.
