Textile Nature - Anne Kelly

This beautiful new book, published by Batsford in 2016, includes two of my pigeons. It's a gorgeous publication, informative as well as a visual feast, and would make a fab Christmas present for anyone interested in textiles at all.

Embroidery magazine

My work was featured in, and on the cover of, the July/August 2016 issue of Embroidery magazine, the magazine of the Embroiderers' Guild. I feel really privileged, and hugely surprised, to have been asked to appear in it, as it's such an excellent publication and one that has inspired me greatly.

Research and development projects 2016

With the absence of the Edinburgh West End Fair this year, I spent some much-needed time on research and development. Continuing on from the quite brief development projects in 2015, I was investigating how to manipulate waste materials and incorporate them into my work. It has come to a bit of a halt at the moment, what with other events to prepare for, but everything is still set out on my specially dedicated experiments table, awaiting any bit of spare time!

Crafts Council Directory

You can see my work and current projects in the fantastic Crafts Council Directory. It's a great resource for discovering the work of lots of wonderful makers and I'm looking forward to having a really good browse through it. My profile is here. Please do have a  look and follow me and like the profile - and other makers' too of course!
