Liverpool Cathedral

I went to Liverpool Cathedral today to see the 100 Hearts.  There is some outstanding work and the Hearts look stunning when exhibited together. There is an excellent catalogue and the Branch is well represented.

Alice Kettle at the Whitworth

I went to the Whitworth to look at my tree - no chance. There are so many trees and so little time! I shall have to go again.  It will be worthwhile as I found the huge pieces by Alice Kettle to be mesmerising.

Tori Riley gave us an excellent talk about the origins and uses of Batik.  She gave us a vivid picture of life in Indonesia and the importance of Batik textiles. We are lucky to have signed Tori up to lead a batik workshop early in 2019.
