Wearable Art

A report from Painswick Wearable Art Festival 10th JULY 2011
by Mike Gallagher, CCT's intrepid investigative reporter

I thought I’d spend a day away from the canal today.

Wrong… In among the wearable art displays I found this young lady in a creation by Jenny Bircher.

Jenny is an ex-councillor, former landlady of the British Oak and a member of Stroud Camera Club.

Last year she created a dress comprised of nothing but photos.

This year Jenny has clearly taken an interest in the Canal!

Her creation ‘Stroud Brewery Bridge’ shows detail of narrow boats passing under the bridge and lock gates that, when opened, reveal what only can be described as FISH.
