These pieces were made using a calico base onto which strips of fabric and paper had been attached using wallpaper paste. The writing on both pieces is directly inspired by the circumstances in which I was creating the work.
This first piece was made over a few days during a camping holiday with friends, it records memories of that particular time.
The second piece was made on one particularly windy day. I incorporated some linocut prints I had made, ripping them before attaching them to the fabric. Along with stitched words I also added some running stitch patterns.
