Flying North for the Summer
In two weeks time I’ll be transporting my flock of six-hundred-and-something birds to the Farne Islands and in under three the exhibition will be open to the public! If you haven’t been to Northumberland before it really is the most glorious place to spend a few days (beautiful beaches, castles, seals, BIRDS, the Cheviot Hills, Hadrian’s Wall…) AND this year, for four months only, you can visit St Cuthbert’s Chapel on Inner Farne and find it filled to the rafters with my wild, collaged flock!
I’ve had some brilliant helpers over the last week who’ve assisted in the cutting out of about one third of the birds so far! Lovely illustration student Alice Kiteley has been an absolute STAR as have lots of friends, family and the fantastic volunteers at Sudbury Hall! Really couldn’t get it done without you all, so a HUGE thank you. Still 400-odd left to go, so if anyone else fancies helping out and is in the Staffordshire/Derbyshire area please get in touch!
