Alice Fox in the Virtual studio

I’ve just got back from the Festival of Quilts at the NEC (via making music in the Yorkshire Dales and visiting a magical garden, but that’s another story).  I had a wonderful three days talking to people, meeting many I’ve met before as well as many I hadn’t, seeing some inspirational textile work, questioning the medium of ‘the quilt’ in my own personal way (in order to try to understand this diverse art form and where I fit in to its world) and sharing with people some of what preoccupies me.  I was invited to be part of the Virtual Studio run by the lovely ladies at Committed to Cloth.  This bunch of talented artists spend most of the show demonstrating a whole range of techniques on cloth and I added a but of rusty stuff to that collective on Friday afternoon (see above).  I now have a few days to re-group before setting up my work on Friday in a sheep pen at the Skipton Auction Mart for Art in the Pen.

  1. Hi Alice, I really enjoyed your lecture and demo at the Festival of Quilts. I’ve been rusting fabrics lately, so was really interested to see how you use rust in your pieces, esp. with the use of tea.
