Judy Tate and Jo Lilley
Sunday December 10th
10am – 1pm
Dorset based Judy Tate has been drawn to soft pastels for a long time. She finds the versatility, immediacy and vibrancy hard to beat.
Most recently the recurring theme is ‘leaves and layers’ – sometimes initiated as an monoprint underpainting.
En plein air sketching and painting gives Judy a platform for larger pastel work in the studio.
Sketchbook travelogues are an ongoing source of inspiration and the garden never disappoints!
Underlying all of her work is a love of colour and the excitement of seeing how far she can take it.
I love traditional handweaving which I do on a floor loom called Jessica. This allows me to combine my skills using colour and texture to explore a love of Scandinavian style rugs and modern woven textiles, accessories and interior products. Intertwined with this I also sculpt intricate animals from wool, often placed on quirky objects giving them a life and character of their own – they can be quite mischievous!
