Sutton Bridge Lincolnshire


I walked near Sutton Bridge, Lincolnsire I was looking at the man made river and swing bridge which was opened while I was there. It is an extraordinary place, with a history of engineering, fariming, wildife and travel.
I spun some simple wool yarn and made a construction to express the joining of places.
The best image seemed to be when I held the drop spindle in line with the waterway and warp sticks.
It is like a sketch book image, perhaps becosue of the potential. I like unfinished work - it allows for imagination and implies ongoing, sustainable practice.
