July Meeting - Gina Smith

Our speaker this month was our own branch member Gina Smith. She stepped in at the last minute, and treated us to an illustrated talk about her textile work.

It was very interesting to hear how Gina builds up her pieces using stitch and transparent fabrics on a background of silk noil. Despite the painterly appearance, all the colour is achieved with expertly placed pieces of fabric.

Inspiration comes from photographs taken on her travels, either close to home in Yorkshire, or further afield in places as far flung as Namibia, India and the Amazon. To this she adds her own artistic interpretation to create unique pieces of work. A very inspiring and entertaining talk.

In other things . . .
