I HAVE A fASCINATION WITH OLD THINGS

Life goes on and around NZ there are lots of once busy buildings like this old woolshed, that are now in disuse and will soon fall down. I want to capture these images in a textile work probably using a system like Haf Weightton from Wales where the background has some paint applied and the the images are heat transferred across the panel and then stitched into. Most of Haf's work centres on urban buildings but I think it would be much more appropriate for me to concentrate on regional NA\Z. The trip has definitely "filled the well" in Julia Cameron's terms. Of course this subject would be interesting to recreate in fabric also with all the texture and rough paint details
