Sue, as an invited exhibitor, has 4 hangings in the main Holmfirth ArtWeek Show at the Civic hall in Holmfirth. These works are inspired by the Artist Alphonse Mucha.
Sue will be demonstrating the art of Feltmaking on Friday 6th July at the Civic Hall in the evening and all day on Saturday the 7th July. Visit her and see how she makes her hangings.
Sue has been running several workshops in 2017…
A banner made by the Friend to Friend group from Holmfirth. The participants ranged in age up to 90 years old created an amazing wall hanging inspired by the artist Hundertwasser.
Workshops in Sue’s studio at Mytholmbridge
Sue’s recent workshops included Nuno felting, Abstract Wallhangings and 3D workshops creating bags and hats. These also include a scrumptious 2 course lunch and wine and lots of fun was had.

What have I been up to?
The textile group from Hope Bank now meet at Sue’s studio once a fortnight. Sue has also worked with groups further afield including creating beautiful Klimt inspired pieces at Bradford Allerton Primary School, Ness field Primary School Keithley creating First World War hangings and with York Feltmakers on some Hunderwasser inspired work.
Sue worked again with the 25 talented ladies from Frodsham, this time inspired by Sue’s Yurt Wall hangings of Yorkshire local scenes. The focus was on blending colours to create skies and landscapes.
Sue also continues to work with children in the community local artistic activities.
Following on from the Interior design Commission Sue has created 2 large Wall hangings for the new Guest Dining Restaurant in Farnley Tyas, Huddersfield.
One features Huddersfield’s local landmark Castle Hill, and the other depicts the old Holmfirth /Brockholes viaduct Railway that crossed over Mytholmbridge farm where Sue Lives. The viaduct has since been demolished.
She completed the Nuno felted Panels for the windows and has since added to these.
The Yorkshire Yurt Festival
The Yorkshire Yurt Festival was a resounding success thanks to all those who participated. This hub of creativity involved artists, musicians, poets, story tellers and writers who came together within the Yurt for an amazing celebration of the arts inspired by and coinciding with Le Tour for the week of 1st – 6th July 2014. Watch the video to see a record of this fantastic event.
