Art in the Barn Artists
Next up for our Art in the Barn (23rd to 27th November) exhibition artists is Kay Docherty. She’ll be bringing a selection of hand made bags, and t-shirt necklaces, perfect for Christmas presents, or a treat for yourself. Her bio is below in her own words.
I was taught to knit and sew by my mother, and had sewing lessons at school. I continued improving my knowledge and skills reading books borrowed from the local library.
As a teenager and young wife and mother I made a lot of my clothes and clothes for family and friends. I accompanied my husband during his postings as a member of the Armed Forces always ensuring that my sewing machine came with me.
During my working life I found that I could relax and unwind after a busy day by knitting in the evenings.
Since retirement I have found more time to indulge in my interest of creating things and have tried different crafts including crochet, soft toy making, felting, needle lace, candle making.
