Main Guild Meeting 17th November

Art on the Rocks


This month we have a talk by guest speaker Carole Waddle titled 'Art on the Rocks'. Carole has hiked extensively in the USA around the Grand Canyon and the Four Corners Area and this illustrated talk is based on the Anasazi dwellings, artifacts and figures found etched or painted on the rock surfaces. These have provided inspiration for an embroidery project and still provide inspiration today.

Photography is usually her starting point from which to develop ideas for her work which ranges from felted hangings, experimental tapestry weaving, hand/machine stitching to beading and wire-work.  She often combines different techniques/media to create sculptural 3D pieces or as a textural base to stitch into. 

Carole is a member of the International Feltmakers Association and a life member of the Embroiderers' Guild. She enjoys exhibiting her work which has found its way into private collections both here and abroad.
