WBEG Monthly Meeting 

Saturday 14 January 2017   2.00pm

Sally Wilson - Designing and constructing her work
www.sallywilson.co.uk
"The majority of my art pieces are initiated through sketches and quick studies and I acquire photographic evidence to back up my findings and aid in the visual development of pieces. I always keep a sketchpad or notepad close at hand, as ideas and concepts often emerge as I work on other pieces and so it is essential to capture thoughts as they occur. Firsthand findings are the most fruitful and I visit a multitude of locations to gather information. After initial research, I begin to work in textiles using free machine embroidery, returning to drawing in order to explore design and composition and to re-evaluate ideas. Pieces are often reworked or modified as the focus changes and develops."

at St Pauls Church Boundary Road, West Bridgford, NG2 7DB
