I am one of 10 Artists exhibiting in Bon Voyage! in the local Artlink Gallery. I have used old maps to make tents origami style as they invoke memories of camping holidays as a child, both with my family and with the Girl Guides. With my brother and my parents I camped in Europe in the 1960s. When I had a family of my own we natuarally went camping too. I also made Origami Yachts as I dreamed of being a nurse in the navy "when I grew up". My dad used to have a boat and had been in the Navy and my brother made a dinghy and sailed it on the Hornsea Mere. I didn't join up but I did train as a nurse...on land. I get sea sick on the ferries! But... I still dream of sailing around the Greek Islands, stoppping off and camping and setting sail again.....I am running a workshop with children at the gallery making Origami boats.These are pictures of my trial pieces.
