I am taking part in two exciting events for this year's SAW celebration of art. See my Diary page to book taster felt workshops at Heritage Courtyard Studios, Wells (venue 31) and meet me at Lytes Cary Manor where I shall be demonstrating and giving a talk during the special weekend event "Landscape of Objects".

I am delighted to have new work selected for this year's Summer Show. The work explores a new direction in sculptural design. More details on my events page.

The Crafts Council has chosen me as Directory Maker of the Week. I talk about my work and how I switched from music to textiles.

Visit the Crafts Council to read the complete article.

I am delighted to be part of this thought provoking exhibition alongside fellow artists working predominantly in textiles.

Join me for the Artist Talk on Wednesday 15th March where I shall be talking about the challenges and highlights of collaboration with haute couture in Paris and London.

Heritage Courtyard,

Palos Verdes Art Centre in California hosts Wearable Expressions, an exhibition of wearable art from around the globe chosen by an international jury. This 7th International Juried Exhibition takes place from 10th February to 16th April 2017. Artists participating from Asia, Europe, Australia and North and South America.

Liz is excited to have work selected for both the exhibition and Runway Show on 4th February 2017 as part of HOUSE, a site-specific performance on the Pacific edge.

Inspired by the heritage of Savile Row tailoring, representing both tradition and innovation, Liz's work aims to capture the concept of classic British design with a touch of sophisticated rebel, reflecting a mood that is fresh and modern.

Denton Arts Council in Texas issued an international call for its competition and exhibition "Materials: Hard + Soft" to be held from February to May 2017. There were almost 1500 submissions that were reduced to the final 95 exhibitors by JoAnn Edwards from the Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco.

Liz was delighted to be selected, "I think of Three of Us as a celebration of my practice where material, process and technique come together, blurring the boundaries between function and aesthetic expression."

Details about the exhibition on the Diary Page.

Liz is delighted to have been awarded The President’s Prize at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen's annual Summer Show.

The hand pleated felt panel is one of the largest panels she has made. A stunning work using Dorset Horn wool farmed on the Mendip Hills near Wells. Hand crafted and finished using a traditional hand pleating technique which is customised to create unique geometric surfaces and textures.
