enjoyed lunch with textile artist clare cotton today, whose beautiful work is displayed around her home

these examples feature fabrics coloured and patterned with plant and other natural dyes, including indigo

found objects, hand stitching and upcycled fabrics are a feature of clare’s stunning work

she also makes unique wearable items

clare also showed us some family heirlooms – a hand stitched silk quilt and a doll’s ensemble (for which she made the doll)

to round off our visit, some magpies flew in for their daily treats – a lovely finish to our visit

  1. Rita, I have just logged on and found your wonderful photos of my art. Thank you so much for this segment. I feel very special particularly because today I have been in Brisbane at QAGoMA viewing the work of Ruth Stonely which just blew me away.
