Visiting Speaker

Linda Florence came to speak to the B.A. group but luckily I was included in the invite.

Linda spoke about her work – showing us the diversity of her practice. One of her messages for success was to push yourself – enter every exhibition you can, talk passionately about your work to all, don’t be put off by rejections and to work with other people as much as possible – networking is a great way to get commissions. Excellent advice for the ones about to graduate – I’m in a different space but it was a reminder to me not to sit back.

All of these images are from Linda’s website.

The Textile Print Room is another website Linda helps to run – full of useful information regards exhibitions, suppliers, courses etc.

A couple more for me to have a look at Studio Weave, Craftspace
