Victoria Baths Fanzine Fair 14th May 2011
I was asked to run a workshop combining fanzines and craft. So 2 weeks before the event I went along to the open day to gather some ideas. The Angel of Purity, who lives in "the best room in the house" defies maturity with her block glass wings and sullen smile. The bold lines and vibrant colours would be perfect for embroidering, I thought.
After coming back from Helsinki the night before I was a little tired, but my fingers were eager to stitch. Over my week long break I had stitched the angel's face and wings, I still have her legs and lily pad to do but she is getting there.
