I was very pleased when the editor of Crafts Magazine contacted me to commission a review of Ellen Sampson’s current exhibition at Northampton Gallery. Sampson is a shoe designer and and is also over half way through a PhD at the RCA where she is exploring the affective life of shoes.
My review is published in the January – February issue of Crafts Magazine, 2015. My copy of the magazine arrived on New Years eve: 2015 has got off to a good start.
See my earlier blog post about the first writing commission that I received from my favourite crafts magazine, which is attached to Crafts Council.
I was delighted to see my review of the ‘Make It Slow’ exhibition at Woodend Gallery, Scarborough has been published in the Jan/Feb 2014 edition of Crafts Magazine. It has been given a whole page. Crafts is one of my favourite magazines, and one I have read for several years.
The exhibition consisted of a beautifully intricate display of textiles by some of the UK’s top makers. Emphasis was on sustainability of materials and in applying the ‘Slow philosophy’ to craft.
An online copy of the review can be found on the Crafts website, here
