Compton Verney

On Friday we went to Compton Verney ( Its not far from Stratford and well worth a visit for its Folk Art. The objects which Enid Marx collected with the historian Margaret Lambert are housed there. The collection helped to provide Marx with ideas for her pattern and design work in textiles and relief printing. There is furniture, textiles, pottery, prints and many quirky objects such as homemade Christmas decorations and toys. Lots of surface decoration and very inspiring for illustrators and designers
