There is a new piece coming to the collection in the studio; Amanda Cobbett's lichens.
Shona from The Shetland Gallery brought over a magazine this week which featured the artist. Amanda uses embroidery to create fungi and lichens, amongst other pieces inspired by nature. One piece in particular caught the attention and so we will shortly have four lichens in a box to show you. If you head on over to the artist's website you can see pictures of the fungi Amanda makes. The lichens will have to wait until we actually hang them!
Embroidery seems to be catching on in the world of textiles again. Have you read this interview with Isobel Currie who creates landscapes in delicate threads? Wonderful!
