Wednesday’s wood engraver
Today I celebrate Sally Hands; I bought one of her wood engravings recently at the 77th Royal Wood Engraving exhibition at Kevis House Gallery in Petworth, Sussex. I was drawn to the image and knew nothing of the artist. I have since discovered that she is a printmaker of many years and has recently returned to spinning and weaving. As I am a lapsed spinner, I decided to reunite myself with my wheel that I had unceremoniously demoted to the loft, since it began to gather dust and take up valuable space.
So while I may not take up spinning in the near future I will make some sketches and maybe make an engraving … So thanks Sally Hands!
