12 May - Judith Lovatt, “ What if ...?”

In May, Judith Lovatt gave a talk about her work and how to explore and develop your design ideas.

Since she was little, Judith stitched, knitted, printed and painted before becoming an art teacher. Judith enjoyed her work for 20 years but had to retire her post of head of an art department in secondary education due to arthritis. Judith continues to explore the possibilities of mixed media and loves to work with free hand and machine embroidery and has a particular passion for French knots which, she says, is the best stitch for texture and accent.

Judith brought with her countless examples of painting, printing and layering with fabric and thread. Her talk ended with a demonstration of blown spray painting.
