One of the activities was a textile route incorporating 39 galleries, museums, and other places, all with textile related things on show. As mentioned on an earlier blog, Gallery Zone was part of this route (number 11 on the map!). We were busy, busy, busy.... but it was great fun. The photo was taken at one of the few quiter moments!
This is one of Frans Beelen's unique and exotic necklaces. She uses textile in combination with minerals, fossils, feathers, glass, beads to make her wonderful creations.

This time we have three artists showing together. They work with textiles, but prefer the term 'artist' to that of 'textile artist'.
Jette Clover started out as a journalist, and nearly always uses fragments of text in her collages and quilts. She is inspired by city walls covered in bleached out symbols, torn posters and unreadable graffiti, which she transfer to cloth through a process of painting, rusting, discharging, and printing.
