"A Skein of Geese"Playing catch-up now..
Last week I had the pleasure of collaborating with friend and artist Susie Dereau on a work for an exhibition which is now showing at the infamous Gaffa Gallery, Sydney.
Animal Collective Nouns is a bi-annual exhibition created by the Noun Collective, and features a diverse talent of artists working in a range of media. I was thrilled to have a handspun yarn included in the show. Our collective noun is "A Skein of Geese".

I spun this using naturally coloured & rare wools: Polworth, Gotland, Blue Faced Leicester, Alpaca and added some Goose feathers for good measure! This photo details Susie's stunning Oil on Linen paintings.
A Skein of GeeseI wrote and article about it for a new blog 'Spin Artiste', dedicated to the art of creative handspinning, and am more than a itty-bit chuffed Arlene published it today.. woot!
If you are around town the exhibition is definitely one to see, and the jewellery designers' in Gaffa's shop Stirling are amazing to boot!
