The exhibition was in the Long Hall at Ramster, a country house nearish Guildford, where there is a biennial textile art exhibition. This year there were over 300 pieces exhibited, everything from traditional birds and flowers to stitched reclining nudes and 3D pieces. Some of the names were renowned artists (Kay Dennis, Fay Maxwell, Heidi Rhodes), others unknown, at least to me, but producing some amazing work. The piece here was from an artist I'd not come across before: Iona Mackenzie Laycock who produces some beautiful abstract land and seascapes.
