Planes in the Tate Britain





Today was setup day for New Designers - It all kicks off tomorrow!

After going along to help/check out what was going on, I wandered across the road to the relocated loop. It looks lovely and I discovered some interesting yarn called 'knit collage' I'm not sure what I would knit with it, but it did look wonderful.

Later I met Matt and we went on a touristy route from trafalgar square to the Tate Britain (think big ben etc) to see Fiona Banner's new work. It is located in the Duveen Galleries so it's particularly effective if you enter via the Millbank entrance! It was absolutly stunning! + a interesting bonus: we could take pictures of ourselves in the reflection of the Sepecat Jaguar! After reading a few articles this evening I think I'm going to be spending alot more time reading up on Fiona Banners works. Feeling really inspired!

I am so glad you have seen them. I saw that on the news last night and instantly though of your work. I was explaining to my husband about a blog who knitted planes and one of those conversations followed where he tough they were full size planes!
