Whilst visiting the Alice at the Tate Liverpool last January, I found out Julie Arkell was going to be showing at the Bluecoat Display Centre – Liverpool, from 10 March to 12 May and holding a workshop on Sunday 29 April.
Form what I’ve read online, Julie Arkel does not exhibit that often and such exhibitions tend to be too far away from our neck of the woods. We weren’t too sure about going but, Liverpool is only 90 miles away, so combined with a shopping trip this would be a great day out for all of us. I can’t make the workshop on the Sunday but I’m going to see the exhibition tomorrow Yipee…..
I’ll take some photos and post them on the blog next week. I might even find something I can use for a giveaway.
Oh, and the name of the Julie Arkell exhibition – I’ve Dusted the Farmyard.

Another inspiration ( I’ve known about her work for a while) is Julie. Like her I love to work with materials I find around my home – newspaper, glue, fabric, wool, cardboard, wire and various bits and pieces (see my current pieces online at my shop or Etsy; view my favourite pieces at my online gallery ). Julie is a contemporary folk artist who produces moulded figures, trees and animals made form glue and paper. She is an avid collector of postcards, plastic dolls, old books, aprons, fabric, buttons, jewellery, used toys and much more; everyday objects which she turns into the most wonderful creations.
