 Greta Talk Inspired By Colour   Greta with her "Inspired by Colour" presentation.

Talks
All talks are supported with a display of my own work.

DON'T COUNT THE CALORIES!
A mouthwatering presentation of textile pieces inspired by sweet and savoury dishes associated with treats and afternoon tea. These include soft sculpture and small quilts depicting cakes, sundaes, sweet dishes and chocolate.

FIRE & WATER is the inspiration for a series of pieces which use a variety of techniques and materials, all in some way associated with either fire or water. Includes subjects such as Venice, Volcanoes, and pieces that will hang outdoors and withstand the British weather.

INSPIRED BY COLOUR shows how colour has inspired my work with design ideas from many sources. These include the summer flower garden, fishing boats, the city of Barcelona, travels to North Africa, and South American textiles. There are some quilts, but also embroidered wall hangings and three dimensional pieces.

TRAVELLERS TALES
Come along on a journey to places such as Venice, Hong Kong, Morocco, Turkey and Spain, as well as local UK travel – places that have inspired quilts, wallhangings and themed Journal Quilts.
