Hannah Lamb – interview in Textile Artist.
This wonderful painting of Salisbury Cathedral by John Constable is currently on show at The National Museum Cardiff and is on my ‘must see’ list. I’m appreciating paintings more and more; at one time I had little interest in them but am becoming fascinated by the palette, technique and subject matter. A Guardian review of the painting.
What a stunning venue for the exhibition

A reminder that I should document my work as it progresses more than I do.

This is particularly relevant to me as my current work contains names. Unfortunately I’ve very few examples of handwriting done by my parents; a recipe from my mother, my father’s journals and an account of a boyhood incident from my paternal grandfather. Nothing which contains their signature.
Look on small beautiful things
Rozanne’s work is exquisite – so delicate. I can learn from her presentation as she too mounts her work on calico.

I don’t know why I’ve stopped making work like this. Maybe when the Spring really arrives I’ll have a burst of energy and be able to do more.
