Spurn Head

I became fascinated with Spurn Head – a narrow spit of land located at the mouth of the River Humber – some years ago after a workshop with textile artist, Alice Fox, who had a residency there. She had produced a couple of books about it, and showed me examples of her rusting work.

I didn’t know it then, but I was to become hooked.

Rather than carry my large sketchbook around, I made this small sketchbook (I’m also a bookmaker) and filled it with ideas. A couple of pages left for more samples, as the ideas come to me. It’s pocket sized, as are the pieces I’m currently making.
