Stroud International Textile Festival

Above: Cut 2 on fold installation exhibition

A great day out exploring the textile festival in the Cotswolds. I enjoyed the train journey - a Great Western Intercity train goes SO FAST compared to the trundling London Waterloo train I'm used to.

The time for the exhibits however was nice and slow. I particularly enjoyed the 'Cut 2 on fold' installation - such attention to detail (right down to the admission badges) and such fun everywhere you looked. My other favourite was the works by Matthew Harris (I knew I recognised the fabric from somewhere and then discovered he had used cotton twill dustsheets - I must dig an old one out from the shed and experiment).
Can't wait for 2010 festival.
