Garden Treasures

SOOOOO, here are some of my textile samples, hung up in my work bay at college, these have all been inpired by a treasure hunt around the garden, looking for some usual and unusual objects that were lurking in secret places.
The pieces on the right of the picture were inspired by a Snowdrop walk, through Guisborough Priory, were the main area was covered by a carpet of snowdrops, the bark on the trees surrounding the area had wonderful textures, which I could have spent a very long time photographing and drawing.

During this project, I visited the Botanical Gardens at Durham which has also proved an inspirational source and again the bark textures took centre stage (especially the peeling bark).

Anyway, time to get back to work!!!
