The British Textile Art Exhibition 62@50, Tokyo, Japan, 2014
Pastimes celebrates the game of draughts, handmade buttons, and bygone times. Draughts, extremely popular in Georgian times, has been played in the United Kingdom for centuries. The board is made from wrapped square buttons, Art Deco in style, and the draughtsmen from Edwardian style lace shirtwaist buttons. I was thrilled when Pastimes was selected for inclusion in The British Textile Art Exhibition 62@50, Tokyo, Japan.
