These Polish papercuts are beautiful and very inspiring - they make me think that bit of folk art applique would be fun.
|Artist Helen Snell was inspired by the polish papercuts. Her 3d papercuts are laser cut from her drawings. They were amazing to see all grouped together and beautifully lit. My photos don't do them justice. If you ever see an advert for her work, go and see it in the flesh.|

I did really enjoy the Joy of Making exhibition despite the lack of cohesiveness. I just wanted to see more of some things. Back in the lobby of the museum is this sculpture of Richard Jobson made by David Mach is made out of wire coat hangers. 1,850 coat hangars to be exact. This fascinated T. And me - it is making a three dimensional shape from lots of two dimensional objects. Very clever. If you know who Richard Jobson is then maybe you were around in the 1980s. Or you are scottish. Or both.
