Since I started using pocket digital cameras I have taken hundreds of random photographs which, unlike those I used to take with my SLR cameras, remain on my memory cards or on my computer, undeveloped and rarely seen by anyone. From time to time I plan to put a selection of those photographs on my blog, some taken over the last couple of years or more but nevertheless still worth a look I think.
I visited The Collins Gallery in Glasgow in March this year to see an exhibition by the International Feltmakers' Association
"One exhibition is of felt headgear by association members, Crowning Glory: Architecture For The Head. Among its 34 hats - some pretty exotic - from Britain, the USA, Finland, Norway, Japan and Russia are pieces by Scotland's Liz Brown, Jeanette Sendler, Jennie Loudon and Eva Kuniczak."
"The other is a selection of 76 items from Mary Burkett's own collection of historic and contemporary feltmaking. It includes 14 pieces by Cowern, and also work from many parts of the world: A spiral wall hanging from Kazakhstan; a panel of two camels and a rider from Mongolia; prayer mat from Turkey; figures in traditional costume from Poland; peacock rug from India; orchids from Russia; a piece from Korea entitled Spirals."
Some of the exibits that were on display:
There's another felt show coming up in the autumn in the Collins Gallery if you're interested and you can get there Suzanne and Lynne.
