New book...Stitches and Strokes

I have added a new book to the collection at ASF Shetland. Pauliina Turakka Purhonen's Stitches and Strokes. Turakka Puhonen's work needs to be seen to be believed and this is a good second best if you cannot get to the originals.

Originally trained in ceramics, the artist now paints, and creates astonishing sculptures out of cloth and stitch, which feature religion or explore what it is to be human. The sculptures are funny, poignant, powerful and thoughtful, and this book is a joy to read.

The ASF collection is available for reference. To use the collection, give us a call to book some time. 01957 744 355 or email: globalyell@btconnect.com
