Goodbye Cowhouse Film Night

I have had a brilliant summer and now the mornings are getting nippy and there is a smokey smell of decay in the air. It is time for The Cowhouse to close for the winter months.  As a thank you to all of you who supported me through mud, rain and grey days, one last film night is on the cards. Many many thanks.

The Cowhouse opening day

Last Saturday was a balmy day for the first opening of The Cowhouse. It made me so happy to see a constant stream of curious people wander in to investigate. It was even better to see the people of Meavy there. Keep an eye out on The Cowhouse website for up to date events information and opening times.

Pop Up Space

I am off to the Royal College of Art in October to start an MA in Woven Textiles. I'm opening a pop up exhibition/ studio space and cafe in Devon to help raise the money to pay for the fees. I plan to have the opening in mid June, with lots of cream teas, strawberries and wine to all who can make it. Watch this space!

The weaver in the skirt

How many generations of Andean mountain women did this skirt clothe? How many babies hid beneath these folds? How many leathery hands repaired each broken end to ensure its continuation into their daughter's own family? When did they decide to reject this tradition and sell it for a few soles?
