Todays speaker was Louise Jessup, her talk was called "A Journey in Mental Health with Textiles as a Companion".   The work she had to show us came from the last eight years, her recovery years, because although she had turned to textiles many times duing her illness she had destroyed all her pieces as not being of any worth.  Louise told her story with humour and honesty. Very moving and thought provoking. You can read more about Louise here

February fill dyke is certainly living up to its reputation and it isn't as beautiful as this painting by Benjamin Williams Leader which is in the Birmingham Art Gallery
