Kirkcudbright Artists Trail
I'll be back in Kirkcudbright again this year, for their 10th anniversary trail. Venue 51 has my name on it. A tent in the garden of a museum may seem like an odd place to display illuminations, as would a tent in a ruined monastery in Lindisfarne. However, the poster I have just made to describe what I do has helped me put into another visible form the underlying art of Wordsmithcrafts. My medium is time.

It is only necessary to make the photos and upload them.

Maybe you have an idea for a leather work?:)

Have you tried working with vegetable tanned leather and tooling patterns into it? www.facebook.com/clarice.milli…

I've tried it, but always failed. :/
Especially with patterns in leather.
Do you have a special leather if it is to succeed? o.O
