Twice a year Whitby hosts a Steampunk weekend. Town is full of all sorts of folk dressed in all their steampunk finary. I exhibit with two good friends, Trish Shaw and Claire Ward, as In Sooth.
This is our exhibition in the Spa in Whitby, what fantastic views we have behind us.
I decided to make some new work for this weekend. The weekend is all about fantastic things, weird and wonderful. So my new peices needed to be too. I decided to create new characters that fitted in with this idea. Ive been thinking about mixing human and animal, shamanistic, folkloreish. heres what i came up with.
These four came to the exhibition with me, the torsos are machine stitched, the heads hand stitched.Im now working on a new one which will be completley hand stitched.
