I love the way the Internet makes art projects that span the globe possible. And I love art that is transient. So I’m very drawn to the World Beach Project, devised by Sue Lawty in assocation with the V&A Museum, where she is Artist in Residence. Over the years our family has left patterns and sculptures with shells, sand, stones, seaweed, and all the random richness left by the tides, on beaches all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The World Beach Project imposes a discipline – only stones may be used. Within that… explore the possibilities. I feel an excursion to the shore coming on.

    Hi – I can’t reply from my site to your question about the pack of fabric from Malvern – so my comment looks a bit odd on your blog;-)
    I think it was from Out of Africa. I can’t find their website but their phone number is 01293 883799. It was a selction pack of 8 pieces 24cm square.
