Kathleen Murphy is a maker who specialises in constructing with needle and thread. Within Kathleen's workspace there is a portal to another place - a vast wooded landscape called Skyruda Binrog. Here, ably assisted by two characters, Murgatroyd, an owl and Bean, a hare, the trio are guardians to the landscape's stories and myths. It is a colourful, 3D, boldly embroidered world populated by shy woodland dwellers, dark spirits and oversized leaves.
