So to fill the gap, I must share these photos and work with you.
The photo is of Wells Cathedral, the work is by the Sarum group and is Designed by Jane Lemon. Jane is a wonderful and gifted person, and I have been so fortunate to have worked with her on a number of occasions. She is a real inspiration. Jane and the Sarum group were commissioned to produce a number of embroideries by Wells to celebrate the millennium. The embroideries are wonderful, and many of them are on show, but obviously behind glass so difficult to photogragh.
The modern church embroideries of the Sarum Group compare favourably with those held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London - under Opus Anglicanum. this photo is part of the Butler Bowden cope held by the Museum. Unfortunately not visible at the moment. You can see some of the work I have done with students in the past if you click on this link. - Students work
