On Sunday we visited some of the artists studios & venues in and around Stroud as part of the Site Festival. We had not been to Stroud before so thought it was a great opportunity to explore! I think we will have to return on a weekday though as none of the galleries were open...there was a fab looking antique shop too with lots of retro looking ceramics & glass in the window!
This was a applied to a wall on one of the main streets...
This is the work of Alison Cockcroft - sculpture & collage.
I really enjoyed meeting her & seeing the work in Stroud Valleys Artspace.
The central metal sculpture came home with us!
One of the other textile artists in SVA was Francesca Chalk. We came away with several of her lovely birdie test piece screen prints which I intend to frame.
This we found in the shopping centre!
