An intriguing glimpse of things newly revealed by the conservation team at Tyntesfield House, a National Trust property in North Somerset. It was a very inspiring day, spent with my group of masterclass students, seeing the fascinating way in which the life of this grand house is gradually being revealed. The group and I are working towards building a collection of textiles around the theme of ‘Conceal and Reveal’. This visit also gave us an excuse to meet up and enjoy each others company as well as doing some serious note, sketch and photo taking. A few images of items that intrigued me -
The first image is the discolouring of a wall surface due to water seepage as well as fading around a removed picture. The last image - can you guess what has been recycled to create this decorative garden feature - masterclass students not eligible to answer!
