Odyssey Textile Art at Woodstock museum

Saturday was the opening day the Oxford museum at Woodstock. On display were some wonderful pieces of work, from a felted saddle blanket, a huge collection of mixed media inchies, remodelled china tea sets, a three part set of organza green man pictures and a wonderful set made from cardboard, beads and twine.
Cardboard and bead pieces
this one makes me think of corset bones

and this one is a perfect spine
