Jo Beattie Guest Speaker June 2019

Head, Heart and Hands.

Jo’s mantra taken from a quote by Ruskin, Head, Heart, Hands the three elements which go into her textile art work.

Head, the wonderful ideas Jo wants to interpret in textiles.

Heart, the friends and family, particularly her  muse Agnes, all remembered in Jo’s art.

Hands, Jo admitted the hardest part, where hands sometimes fall short of the heart and head.

Jo’s love of her textile art was inspirational and made  for a most enjoyable afternoon.
