Jo Polack Padstow Stitch Map
My unique Stitched maps of towns, villages, landscapes were spotted by Stein's of Padstow. A new Padstow was commissioned and now hangs on the wall of Rick Stein's Cafe, Middle Street, Padstow. Prints available and selling fast from Stein's Gift Shop next door to the cafe and also from Jo Polack Studio, St Agnes.

 A write up on St Agnes Marine Conservation Group website after I was inspired to create new works in my series 'Its Another world Down There' by their fabulous talks which revealed more of the beautiful underwater ecosystem off Trevaunance Cove. Thanks folks. Keep up the fab work you do to celebrate and conserve our special coastline.

Jo Polack Studio Gallery
Exciting breaking news! A new, rather lovely, studio gallery for me in Peterville, St Agnes for 2014 following a successful 'pop up' here. Look out for the phone box opposite No 4 restaurant & Taphouse

This new studio gallery is an unusual and exciting space which enables me to hang my work more creatively and have room to make my larger pieces. Come and visit. Open Tues - Fridays plus 1st Sat month & others by arrangement.





Woods, Wings and What Lies Beneath!

New felt 'n' stitch hangings exhibited at Archie Browns, Kenwyn Street, Truro.
March & April 2013.

From tall ash to vibrant sea fans these hangings are a sample of work inspired by tree planting beside ancient woodland, bird motifs in textiles world wide and the truly astonishing world that exists just below our Cornish coastline.

Go on up, treat yourself to a yummy coffee and cake. Then let me know on facebook which hanging you like best and why! 

See my sketchbook is online!

Yippeee: The Sketchbook Project, a great US 'touring visual library' has its digital pages. Go to www.sketchbookproject.com click on digital library and enter Jo Polack in artist's name and UK in country. You should be able to have a virtual flick through my mini meanderings. I just ordered my sketchbook and got given a theme at random; really valuable to make me take a little art adventure journey I might not have otherwise taken! I painted - I hardly ever just draw and paint and it has led to a plan for a whole series of work around the stories of 1001 nights. Watch this space (for about a year!)

We were all so pleased with what we had learned and achieved. Jo was an amazing coach & mentor… excellent tuition throughout… and with humour & gentle encouragement. We hope to bring our youngest and 3rd sister next year for an Aggie Arts experience! Gina, via TripAdvisor
