Threadbare @ Manchester Craft & Design Centre first solo show is fast approaching!!
I will be installing my Northern Quarter inspired pin and thread drawing in Manchester Craft & Design Centre from the 28th June to the 2nd July.
Feel free to pop in during the install week to see me in action or better stilll come along to the opening on the 3rd July 2-4pm. There will be lots of pimms, live music and also a chance to get in on the action as there will be some live pinning going down!! Be great to see you there!!
The show runs until the 30th October.

"Visiting Manchester is always hugely inspiarational for me and exhibiting with MCADC is the perfect opportunity to showcase my fascination with Manchester's Northern Quarter. By capturing the charm of the mundane streetscapes with the simpliest of materials, pins and thread, I hope to give my installation the buzz and life of its unique surroundings."
