Inspired by Madge Gill

IMG_6423Over the summer holidays I worked with children at Orleans House Gallery to create drawings of their dreams inspired by the work of Madge Gill, and turn them into group cyanotypes on fabric. IMG_6425

Now I have put their work together to make a dress, inspired by Madge Gill's dresses in Lausanne and Sydney, and it's on display in the new Madge Gill exhibition at Orleans House Gallery.

This is my first venture into dress making and I think I've caught the bug.  Next stop, acquiring a sewing machine of my own!
