Julie Arkell

Yesterday whilst on the internet, I stumbled across this lady by accident, but she has been one of my favourite artists for years! I adore everything about her work- the quirkiness, colours and materials. I would love to go to one of her workshops so I must look into that. Unfortunately I couldn't find a website to show you but you can buy her book here which I have and cherish and I also found a wonderful blog called Lovely Textiles that has a great post on Julie. You can also click here to see some more of her work.

I've got quite a few things to do today- one is to do a painting for my friend Cat for her Birthday (which I hope to show you tomorrow) and the other is to start card number 34! 

Have a good day everyone :)

I'm a Julie Arkell fan too and love her book. She runs courses in France with Les soeurs anglaises but they're too pricey for me. When you say you ran into her did you meet her? Salx

Hi Sal- yes I can see how it could be read like that so I've changed my post! Sorry about that! Unfortunately no I didn't meet her in person but wouldn't that of been great! Thanks for letting me know about the courses in France I will have look and see if I can save up for one-either that or I'll fall off my chair at the prices! :)

Ahh shame! I was soooo excited for a minute! Anyway, if you're interested her courses in France are here:

They are from £750.
She used to do workshops in Loop in Islington but I think she's stopped now! Let me know if you go, I'll be soooo jealous! With love Salx
