While beavering away today I was listening to Radio Manchester.
The main topic of conversation has been
INTERNATIONAL WORLD WOMEN'S DAY.
Listeners were asked which woman or women inspired them
I couldn't resist ringing in and saying that my admiration goes out to all the artist/makers/crafters working alone in their studio workshops with perhaps just the radio for company.
Getting motivated every day can be hard for people working on their own.
But with the blogs and facebook pages they write about their work and the fantastic photographs that are posted it makes for a wonderful community where people are boosting each others confidence and inspiring one another to carry on.
Here are a tiny tiny few of the women textile/mixed media artists that I like and don't get me started on all the fabulous women I know in Vintage Land. I will have to leave that for another day
