In February I started exhibiting work in three venues. Firstly in Greenfield Community College, Newton Aycliffe. This exhibition has now ended. I was delighted to have two pieces selected for the “Into the Woods” exhibition at the Woodhorn Museum gallery in Ashington which continues to mid April. Two pieces have also been selected for the Spring Exhibition at No.42 Gallery, Bishop Auckland.


Good news

I seem to have neglected this site for some time. Since my last post I’m pleased to say I have been accepted as a member of the Society for Embroidered Work. I feel very honoured and amazed at the talent of its members.

Im not really posting on Facebook anymore preferring INSTAGRAM (instagram@l.wood100) where you can find more examples of my up to date work.

Here is a couple of photos. The first is some work in progress on the theme of trees. Hand stitching a murmuration of starlings on vintage table linen. The second a hand stitched Hand of Fatima on silk for a travelling book.2C65BF44-ECA5-47A0-A699-65979C43FCDF945BDD23-CE43-4341-8F5A-DB46D3CBCE9E

Also relates to the undercurrent of hidden opinions and feelings. I’ve layered fabrics, hand stitched, foiled and printed/painted with acrylics.


Work from the Jessica Gradey workshop I attended on Sunday. She’s a lovely young textile artist who produces stunning work from very unusual materials. I worked on a vintage Doily embellishing with cosmetic sponges, metal nuts, washers, earbuds, rubber bands ….as well as some sequins and beads. Really enjoyed the day. Now all I have to do is stretch the work and frame….that might have to wait!
