Today is April 1st, a day normally synonymous with fools and pranksters. But not so this year, we have far more pressing matters to focus on.
As a community of artists living within the Tamar Valley we have been invited to take our craft online and share our creativity through social media. Join us on our journey through the month of April and explore different media through our artists' eyes. Follow @drawntothevalley
The textile pictures I was due to be exhibiting are still safe and sound with the framer, victims of the lockdown. But here is a peek of my intrepretation of Pentillie Castle, a stunning venue for weddings and events situated on the banks of the River Tamar. I created it using repurposed fabrics, applique and free motion embroidery. The daffodils in the foreground are hand embroidered French knots and the lace daffodil proudly stands in 3D adding to the depth and texture of the piece. I look forward to seeing it framed!
I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
Keep safe, well and positive, Joanna
