Wylye Valley Art Trail
My work is varied and my exhibition will include large wall art pieces to small items of jewellery using a variety of fabrics, yarn, lace and ribbons including many vintage pieces. All inspired by the heritage craft of Dorset Buttons.
Each day I will spend time working on some of my current projects and I welcome any questions you may have of this heritage craft.
