Felt; Bags & Boots! by Jill Halsall

Some examples of Jill's feltmaking!
I have no idea if she will be exhibiting these in November. Knowing Jill she'll have made a whole new set of felt-works by then!
Jill & I have an exhibition of felt at Westgate Studios 'Project Space' in November, for the Artwalk. We're calling it 'Woolgathering'....a reference to the material, and also a small nod to Patti Smith, who has a book called the same. 
I'm a big Patti Smith fan. And when Jon and I went to Iceland a few years ago, we were lucky enough to be there the same time as she was doing a gig.  It's the third time I've seen her; she's touring again this year. Has a new album out entitled 'Banga'.
As might have become noticable on this well as art, I'm passionate about music!


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. I will check out Michael Rosen as you suggest. And lucky you to have seen Patti Smith 3 times, she is quite remarkable.

  2. hi heather; yeah....patti is awesome! have just bought 'Banga'. sounds great.
