I was pleased to be able to give a piece of artwork to be included in this large textile piece by St Ives artist Andrea Carr. She had collaborated with a friend of mine Jo Mayes to create a performance art piece based around St Ia Well, close to the Tate Gallery and Porthmeor Beach.
My children often play in the well water as it falls down on to the beach to create a natural waterfall and pool so it is a place very close to my heart. The textile was used to make a beautiful dress which was worn by a dancer who walked from this sacred site down to the waves.
It is currently hanging in St Ives Library alongside some collagraphs made by a handful of local children who were lucky enough to enjoy a printmaking class by Rachael Kantaris at the Porthmeor Print Workshop. I think she had encouraged their use of colour beautifully.
