- Interactions with other people
- Personal challenges
- Working to a deadline
But the bits about personal challenge and deadlines were still missing and I decided that joining an exhibiting group may well fill the gap. After talking this over with several people, a few months ago I joined up with some friends, old and new, to begin some small steps towards becoming that group. It's new territory for all of us and we all recognise the need to gel as a group and to have a body of work behind us. At the moment we're only meeting every six to eight weeks so it will be a gentle journey. The future is exciting but the now was still lacking the dynamic that I'm looking for.
Ten Plus Textiles suggested I try for membership of the group. I hadn't considered it, because the group is so well established with several individual artists within their number, nor would I have risked this friendship by asking for an introduction. But wheels were set in motion, I was invited for
Now both the now and the future look exciting, I only hope that I can do all these good people justice.
