Jilly Edwards Tapestry Weaver – West Country Weaver Day
April 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm£12/ £44
Jilly will share pictures of her work that have featured in major shows and talk about the main focus of her work. She will talk about her publication “Joy – Yellow is the new Blue” and the work leading up to it. We’ll also get to hear what is in the pipeline for her; her drawing project and what will be exhibited in Arundel in the summer.
“My tapestry is primarily based on journeys whether long haul or local. As I travel, I sketch/ photograph and collect oddments of ephemera, to take back to my studio to work with, collating thoughts of how my travels will influence my ideas. I have become intrigued by glimpses and moments, trying to capture the elements of my travels using abstracted elements that are influenced by the landscape, not literally but purely in the colour, texture, marks and memories.”
“Of course travel has been curtailed for the last year, but memories don’t fade”
