EXHIBITION: 31st October & 1st November @ Larchwood Studio Hay-on-Wye HR3 5LA
Dedicated craftswoman Maureen Richardson has spent a lifetime manipulating natural materials and transforming found objects.
Highly regarded for her extensive work developing paper making from plants, Maureen has both taught and written several books on the subject, and has exhibited at venues all over the world.
Whilst best known for paper making, to focus solely on this would be to tell only half the story of Maureen’s constant involvement with the production of objects and artefacts. Her ceaseless creative engagement encompasses an extensive range of traditional applied arts including rush and straw work, basketry, fabric patchwork, mosaic and pottery, jewellery making and collage, and wood and stone carving.
This retrospective exhibition gathers together the expansive scope of Maureen’s creative practice, presenting 70 years of artistic endeavour which seems to spring out of the very substance that life is made of.
