  • TAKE TIME | MEET THE ARTIST

Valerie Kirk studied art and design at Edinburgh College of Art, where she discovered woven tapestry. As a recent graduate, she came to Australia and worked in the Victorian (now Australian) Tapestry Workshop and travelled the country to teach in communities and colleges. She is an artist and tapestry weaver, writer, teacher and public figure who has made a significant contribution internationally. Her current practice focusses on exploring the past as an imaginary space that impacts on our present and future.

Join us this Saturday at 1 PM along with Valerie and some of the other artists from Take Time who will be presenting tapestry demonstrations and artist talks.

  • Hopefully get my hair back to this tone today as I had wanted it more silver but had to get it lightend which ended up with a blonde colour which is nice but not me. So going back to see @Kim Mathieson this morning for a wee tone of grey to sort me out. 😊💖 Anyway not the point of this post (have a tendency of rambling on) 😅
I've post a few pictures over the past few days, on here and fb, mostly here. 
I'm me. Being my authentic self. If you don't like it keep pressing that unfollow button. It's taken me ages to actually feel secure and comfortable within myself to post my craft work. If it makes you uncomfortable ☝ See above.

It doesn't define me, I'm a mother, a Fiancee. I love nature and music, flowers going walks with my family. Having a wine or two... 😉 I'm currently getting fit by attending the summer block at wee toon warriors. I've always been spiritual and this has been a part of me for a long time and will continue to do so. Followers or likes doesn't bother me in the slightest. I like posting my stuff will continue to do. It was a incredibly hard decision to do so because of where I stay, insecurities about "what people might think" I'm over it, I've done a lot of serious work on myself recently and realised I really don't care how I'm perceived by people who aren't important to me and if the ones I love can't love me for me, that's there issues not mine. Thankfully My Fiance supports me, helps make me items I need from driftwood. He doesn't understand it but doesn't need to. He is just supportive. I have the people I need in my life. I am not a member. Do some research before jumping to obscure conclusions. Peace out. ✌💖😊 #shadowworkheals #healingmyselfthroughmycraft #authenticselfhealing #traditionalcraft #greywitches #instawitchesoftherealm #idontjudgeanyone #hairpictures 😆😉 #supportwitchesoninstagram #witchesoninstragram #diversityisstrength  #peace
