One of our favourite windows in the Open for Art Programme is 27/28 Market Place – it’s quirky, beautiful exterior makes us smile and it really lends itself to showing handmade.
This Friday we are saying goodbye to the works of Jo Quinn and Lisa Marie Gibbs, as we will be installing a new exhibition so you only have a few days to see it in the flesh but if you can’t here is taster:
Lisa Marie Gibbs
I am inspired by the mundane, insane, gossip, beauty, love, life and all the other stuff that surrounds us. I work in a diverse way that combines my obsession with drawing, painting, hand – sewing and knitting to create pieces that you can wear or to adorn your home.
I make things that I hope will touch you in some way. I want to make things that become part of your everyday lives, but that in some way still retain those feelings of wonder, when you first saw, bought or were given them however long you have had that piece.
You can find out more about my work by taking a sneaky peek at my website www.patchworkbutterfly.co.uk
