Three collage/embroideries recently exhibited at the recent Littleborough Arts Festival exhibition.
I will write a little about the festival in my next blog, but for now please do check out the webpage:
Embroidery on mixed media. Segment of larger piece.
This little fella, and his rolled up newspaper, can be found “walking along” on the collage I’m currently displaying in the People’s Art Exhibition at Touchstones, Rochdale. I’ll display the whole collage here after the exhibition comes down.
I couldn’t make the “preview”, so I haven’t seen it hung up yet. Last year my work got hung near the “kiddie’s colouring table”. I rather liked that, and I hoped the little ones enjoyed it.
I see that my last blog was five months ago. In the gap there has been a long hot-wet summer and lots of “low-brow” novels that I thoroughly enjoyed.

My, I’m enjoying the early English spring time. So I place my green-hatted lady here, like a child putting a pussy willow branch on the nature table, or a small boy putting a bit of lamb’s wool in his pocket. Is being in the spring time a return to innocence for Salty Pinches one asks oneself?
Looking ahead to a darker part of the year, I’m pleased to mention that Littleborough Arts Festival will take place between 15-22 October this year (a different time of year than usual). So, save the date if you can!
More about that at the end of the summer. For now, I’m taking a blogging break, to sew, to work on my ideas for the arts festival, and just, “to be in England now that Spring is here”.

I exhibited this collage at Touchstones Open Art Exhibition, Rochdale, recently.
I’m not going to tell you anything else about it just yet, not even the title. Make up your own theories and narratives (if you like). Next week I will tell you the facts I know. There wouldn’t be any point me doing the collage if I knew what it was all about.
“Desire” – mixed media, collage and embroidery.
“Don’t Worry. We won’t flood on a hill” – mixed media, collage and embroidery.
“Love” – mixed media, collage and embroidery.
A little bit of colour to start the week. A selection of my work exhibited at The Coachhouse, Littleborough recently.
“All intellectual property rights in my designs are and will remain the property of Angela Walker.”
The song had many verses and the bell soon rang. We’ll meet up with this charming individual in a blog later this year. Strange what one remembers, but it was a very good feather.
Meanwhile, I have been finishing off my art work for the Littleborough Arts Festival exhibition and the Touchstones Art Exhibtion. I’ve also been wandering the streets handing out leaflets about the Festival to every poor person I have passed.
