So, since I my last update here’s what’s been going on on Terra Phia:
As usual, I’m super busy trying to catch up with myself after the latest bout of flu – roll on Summer! – at least I managed to mass produce crochet jewellery whilst confined to the sofa!
Currently I’m working on a very fiddly wedding dress remodelling project – pics coming soon – and preparing for my debut exhibition of artwork!!!
My very first exhibition “Cerulean” of sustainable multimedia artwork and apparel goes on show from the 18th April to 23rd May! Thanks to Oriel Bangor Arts Initiative, my work will be on show with a couple of other local Artists in the heart of Bangor 🙂
Here are a few pieces I’m working on for my exhibition:
I’m also very pleased to have another couple of outlets for my Phia eco jewellery, which is now on sale at Storiel in Bangor and most recently at Siop Ogwen in Bethesda, plus at Harlech Pottery down the coast and St Abbs Woolfest this weekend (7th April) up in the Scottish Borders.
In celebration of St David’s Day on the 1st March, I’ve been creating Daffodil neck-pieces from scraps of waste leather crocheted together with recycled cotton and raw silk with recycled beads.
I’m also very proud and excited to announce that my mother, renowned textile artist Eta Ingham Lawrie & I will be having a double demo stall “Eta and Phia’s Woolly Wonders” at Woolfest GB in Cumbria this June!!! Its the first large scale event for Phia so I’m VERY excited!!! I’ll be demonstrating how to make up-cycled crochet and felt jewellery, whilst Eta will be showcasing her incredible free-form weaving skills – with hundreds of woolly stalls its well worth a hike up to Cumbria this Summer!
Well, I think that’s just about it for now, will post lots more pics very soon as I’m having a photo shoot next week with my dear friend and very talented photographer, Denise Baker, to finally catalogue my work!
Til then, warmest wishes,
