Encouragement of art in buckinghamshire
Date:August 11, 2017

Barbara Shaw

I create art in textiles and ‘paint’ with fabric, making images by hand-stitching small pieces of material together in layers. As well as regularly exhibiting in galleries and exhibitions in the south of England I have been Artist-in-Residence at two National Trust properties: Chastleton House in the Cotswolds (2014) and Claydon House in Buckinghamshire (2015). In 2014 I was awarded a prize for Excellence in Craft in Oxfordshire and a picture was bought for Oxfordshire County Museum collections. My work has also featured in magazines such as Cotswold Life, Be Creative with Workbox, Craft and Design, Leisure Painter and a German publication Filzfun. In 2016 I had a piece of work in an exhibition in Parliament, some pictures in the Oxford Museum of Natural History and also Corinium Museum, Cirencester.
I am a Member of Oxfordshire Craft Guild, a Licentiate Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and a Member of Bucks Art Society.
My work is available as originals, limited edition prints and cards. I am very happy to consider commissions.
