I'm delighted this piece of work has been chosen to be exhibited in CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery from the 3rd - 27th August with Cork Textiles Network. The theme of the exhibition is 'Play' and I have used noughts and crosses as my inspiration. The work is discharged linen and saffron dyed linen with rust which has been stitched pojagi style and waxed. This is the work before it has been buffed and a further coat of wax added.

I have just finished a 4 week course with Joanna Kidney at her Outpost Studios in Bray experimenting with encaustic wax. Lots more to learn and more experimenting with how to work it into my fabric pieces but it was very enjoyable. Joanna has great patience and was very informative and giving - definitely a worthwhile workshop. Here are some images :
and this one is avocado and saffron dyed linen with wax - pojagi style - probably my favourite:
