Emily Notman Mixed Media Installations Friday evening talk 26th May 2017

Emily uses fabrics and paper; anything that can be used to stitch into. She leaves wire and pins in work. She left work in the rain. The bridal dress feel comes from a favourite aunt who died. Emily used shells, and made shells (mussels) and barnacles. She developed landscape panels which you can see here; Emily handed  these round.  She frays fabric and cuts into it with a soldering iron. She makes loops and fake French knots with wool or embroidery threads. A Beijing craft magazine portrayed her work and she exports to China.
