If you are a regular reader of this blog you would have realised by now that The Material Girls have joined forces with a Canadian textile group Articulation (Articulated Materials). Last year the combined works 'Bridging Waters' were exhibited in three venues, galleries in the UK and are now exhibiting in galleries across Canada.
Here is a link to some promotional information from The Bay of Fundy

The Material Girls added some extra work to their project whilst the work toured the UK and  Articulation  are doing the same you can see Leslie's work  on her blog here!
