From October to December 2011 I was 'Artist in Residence' at Coventry War Memorial Park, as part of Craftspace's Making Moves II contemporary craft programme.
Following my residency I developed a commission piece in response to my experiences and reflections during this time.
The piece has been touring alongside the work of eight other contemporary craft practitioners and their mentees, as part of a regional exhibition since September 2012, and continues until next year.

Making Moves II is a craft development initiative which builds on a seven year partnership between Staffordshire County Council and Craftspace.
This stimulating touring exhibition features work from 9 craft residencies that took place in community settings across West Midlands between September 2011 until July 2012.
The Making Moves Exhibition Tour visits community venues across the West Midlands until August 2013. To find out more about the touring exhibition and the project visit:
