twist of fate
Let's talk of small world for a moment.
In my previous blog entry, I mentioned Humblyband, as I was day-dreaming in the main room at Shetland's main art gallery, for a very simple reason: basketry.
Humblyband project: Humblyband
As I was exploring Ruth Macdougall's latest blog entries for an update of her curach we shall carry and row at a later stage, I suddenly realised that both artists, Macdougall and Walpole, would deliver their respective talk at some International Conference, "Basketry & Beyond: constructing cultures" at the University of East Anglia on the same day, one, following the other! Needless to say Ruth must have smiled when she read my comment on FB...
Without a doubt, this world could fit inside a single basket.
