Alice Fox Forgotten Haberdashery book

Hebden Bridge Rag Market are holding a summer exhibition on the theme ‘haberdashery’, with 20 artists work displayed in 20 shop windows during July.  My book Forgotten Haberdashery is one of those 20.  This features marks made by rusty pins from a rusty round tin, prints from scraps of lace and yarn, an old button, vintage silks and an abandoned needle. I’ve used rust prints, collagraph print, embossing, monoprint, screen print, chine colle, and stitch (gosh, that sounds a lot but the surfaces are actually quite subtly built up).  I’m looking forward to hearing where it has ended up…

  2. I’ve been away and have missed some of your recent posts, so I’m catching up. These are just beautiful – calming and subtle and so full of suggested imagery – lovely and thank you for sharing.
