We know there were a few disappointed people around last year when we had to cancel Julieann Worrall Hood's workshop, so we thought you might be interested in her upcoming exhibition at the Bath Spa University.  It's bound to be a cracker and we're just sorry not to be near enough to visit ourselves.

Here's a little about the show in Juliann's own words:

"In my capacity as part time lecturer and tutor on the Creative Arts Practice degree course at Bath School of Art, Bath Spa University I have been working on a project with second year Mixed Media Textiles students developing new work in response to the collection at The American Museum in Bath. We will be exhibiting the resulting pieces, a wonderfully diverse collection of contemporary responses including laser cut plastics, tapestry, print and alternative taxidermy, from June 3rd -5th in the Stables Gallery at the American Museum. Please find attached an invitation to the private view on the evening of June 2nd.

I will be exhibiting a tapestry and a mixed media piece entitled The Goldilocks Principle, which I have made inspired by the folk arts, rag rugs and navajo weaving techniques in the collection and the aesthetics of Mennonite Ledger Drawings of animals. These will be the first in my new Golden Ark series of tapestries, drawings and mixed media work, raising awareness about endangered species. I am fortunate to be the recipient of a Theo Moorman Award 2014/15 to develop this new work in tapestry."

And here are a few more of the wonderful Textile Jigsaw pieces that we're slowly sewing together into the quilt to be auctioned and the proceeds of which will be donated to the Cambodian Childrens Fund
