Knitting hummingbirds in ‘A Space to Connect and Grow’ at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. Designed by Jeni Cairns in collaboration with Sophie Antonelli of the Green Backyard for Metal Peterborough, it won a gold medal and Best Summer Garden.

It was an absolute delight to perform in this gorgeous space, using recycled and upcycled materials. A triumph!

The international textile group PRISM returns to the Mall Galleries with the first of a two part show.

For 2014 PRISM presents a collection of thought-provoking and expressive artworks that respond to the exhibition title Coded : Decoded. With a combination of wall-based pieces, 3 dimensional work, and collaboration, individual interpretations promise both conundrum and disclosure.

The second part of the Show, with entirely different work, will take place in the autumn in three separate venues as part of the Knitting and Stitching Shows.

I’m one of five artists working in partnership with the John Clare Trust to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Clare’s death. The project involves an artists’ residency based at Clare Cottage researching the life, work and legacy of John Clare, with a series of installations and interventions in the Cottage culminating in a contemporary art exhibition. The project is supported by the Arts Council, Vivacity, Metal and the John Clare Trust and starts today, with the first exhibition opening on May 16. Follow our progress on
