Showing our hand

I'm a bit hesitant to put this out into the world – but I think it's time. For a little while now, my textile gals and I have been kicking around the idea of putting on an exhibition. In December last year we decided to get serious, and yesterday we had our second planning session – with plenty of food to keep the ideas flowing.

Our theme is 'Background Noise' – as all of us have begun our serious exploration of a textile practice while holding down full-time jobs, having babies, moving house or changing careers. The exhibition is a chance for the textile work to move to the foreground – a celebration of our journey so far.

One of our favourite parts of working alongside each other, is hearing about the process each of us goes through to get to the act of creating. Yesterday was no exception. I'm constantly inspired by these women and amazed that one theme can bring forth so many different, yet fascinating approaches.

We have a long way to go in realising this little dream of ours, and a lot to learn, but I'm so excited that we're on the way!
