I have plans for the summer in France and working with larger pieces of silk as a wraparound experience is a part of those plans. If i can fund it i will set up a community silk painting project. Maybe something off the wall ,on a grand scale for a big exhibition.Our village is 700 years old and has for centuries been based around the manufacture of copper items,pans ,kettles etc..
This historic industry is now nearing it's end and as the village changes ,new people and families come from all over the world to share the richness of culture and creative energy. Interactive arts and installation are part of the growing format which the village is very slowly starting to adopt. Glass, Sculpture.Metalwork, Jewellery, Silk painting,Film and Poetry are all finding a place to create and interact with a changing modern world and its diverse community.
