Interactive Textile Wallhanging – “From the East”

This is another interactive story board, which was requested by Nottingham Castle and Art Gallery for their Children’s Gallery. This piece was designed as a textile replica of the painting “From the East” by Jan Siberects.

This time the interactive story board was based on an actual painting, which was daunting and hard work, as I wanted to do the painting justice. It was created the same size as the original picture too. For the background I used the same technique as the “Beyond The Sea” interactive wall hanging, and all the individual pieces were hand painted, made with Velcro on the back too.


Hello to you all and Happy New Year. It’s been a while since I’ve made contact! My apologies for that to all my loyal customers and followers. As some of you may know I have had a very busy year in 2018. For the first few months I was busy with my mum, who was in and out of hospital. I’m pleased to say she is better now after a major operation. During that time my daughter Rebecca had a lovely baby girl in May, so I was busy with looking after her little boy and the new mum and baby. I now have four wonderful Grandchildren! So, after much thought and deliberation, I have decided to cease trading from January 31st 2019. I have loved running my little business for the last ten years, and making many new friends and meeting lots of lovely people. I am now putting my energies into my growing family and promoting veganism. I feel that addressing this is so urgent now, as our planet is on the brink of a climate change crisis, and adopting a vegan diet is the most important thing we can all do, to help stop this. For our children and grandchildrens future. So once again, thank you for supporting me and I wish you all well in the future and am still very happy to hear from you. Best Wishes, Lynda
