A Meaningful Journey in Textile Art – Guest Blogger – Wendy Mackinnon

October 22, 2016

Autumn Exhibition – Blog #8  – Level 3 Advanced Studies in Experimental Stitch – Asters

I always have a sense of satisfaction at the end of a 2 year program when I pause to reflect on all the wonderful work we have all achieved.  But for me, it is the journey that has the most meaningful lessons.  Taking vague ideas, filtering them through design principles, and learning to listen to the work in progress is a wonderful challenge.  Along the way, we meet and bond with other emerging artists in our class and have the luxury of spending creative time in a supportive environment here at ‘the barn.’ The guidance of Gail and her assistant Penny along the way is focused on our developing the skills to work independently. Much of my work is inspired by the flora of the West Coast as in my umbrella titled In the Shade.   However, world travels remain a strong influence as in my piece titled Gellabeya.
