I'm Still Stitching!
Street Art , a touring exhibition from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
The work on show is from many well know street art artists including Banksy and Shepard Fairey.
I was surprised to find some very thought provoking images and a wide use of materials which had been used in unusual and creative ways.
This included a tree made of old industrial timber pieces and painted with African style patterns and faces, which seemed to me to represent an urban jungle.
The children also attended a work shop to produce their own street art and had a very enjoyable, busy afternoon.
I'm off on another school trip at the weekend to visit the art galleries in Birmingham which I hope to tell you about next week.
I spent all last weekend on my own work and I'm stitching on many new landscapes for the exhibition.
Bye for now
