The Faerie Tailor exhibition is a journey into tiny, magical worlds created by artist, Emily Bazeley.
The artwork in this exhibition has been crafted from natural materials which have been found on forest floors, in gardens, on beaches, and also in places where you would not expect to find faerie inspiration, including city streets and car parks.
There is an abundance of detail in work – the more you look, the more you will see – prepare to be enchanted by the miniature costumes and dwellings, fashioned from feathers, pinecones, acorns, leaves, and even bugs and bones.
Suitable for all ages, especially the imaginative, The Faerie Tailor exhibition will take you gently by the hand and lead you to a place of wonder, and perhaps inspire you to create your own faerie worlds.
Emily Bazeley lives in West Donegal and has been creating works of art for twelve years. She has a strong ethos of only using ‘what has been finished with’, so instead of consuming to create, she gathers ‘gifts’ from nature and upcycles and recycles what is found.
