"Thread" Exhibition !

Sunday the 3rd of November will be the first exhibition i will be participating in which will be held at the Farnham Maltings, along with my fellow 3rd year girls. Our work includes 2nd year level textiles both print and weave specialists. I will be showing 5 pieces in the show and looking forward to people coming to see it. I'm not sure yet how much it is to get into the exhibition but will be posting more towards the time. There will  also be other artists and textile designers holding stands of their work to both sell and show. Looking forward to it!.. The future is only just beginning for the 3rd years :)....For more info follow the link bellow:

EASYBIB!... The referencing time saver

I can't believe i have only just heard about this app to help me with bibliographies!... I would definitely recommend it to anyone who struggles with referencing. This free app literally does it all for you in 3 seconds! All you have to do is hover your camera over the bar-code on a book and the app will simply load in a couple of seconds and as if by magic all the information you need comes up, including the title, author, place, publisher and date. genius! ... and no its not cheating... just saving you so much time!... plus it really helps if say you're in a book shop and want the reference quick this is all you have to do ! :) being a student i would like to thank the designer of this app very very much its so nice and simple.

I'm back!

I'm all back at uni and have officially moved back onto my desk and already to set up camp for the next 8 months. Excited but really need to get my head i gear and start the real work a.s.a.p. ... printing!... so here i go lets see what i can make out of this load...

Pinning most of my work up in front of me always helps to try and keep my mind flowing and link things up to what I've already done.

So many books!

So the research is slowly progressing by literally raiding the university library!.. i always tend to research different areas of art so that i can get a larger perspective of compositions, colours, shape etc. Even though I've been writing out bibliographies for a couple of years now i still can't seem to get my head around it! The Farnham library is huge! I am so grateful that we have such a range of books that really interest me... although the only bad thing is when some books are available on 3 week loans and there is only one copy of the book! Some of the books i adore have already been taken out so it looks like i'm either going to have to wait 3 weeks for them to come back or dip into my pockets and buy some... looks like i'll be asking for some books for Christmas!?

All of these books i highly reccomend especially "Cutting edges (Contemporary collage)" 
Robert Klanten, Hendrik Hellige and J. Gallagher... which includes many of the best collage pieces from around the world... and even if you're not that interested in collage i can almost garentee you will be if you look through this.. i found it on amazon for around £22. Although that maybe slightly expensive for a book its well worth it!
