my attention was drawn today to buntings, see here for what they are, on wiki.

Basically, a “bunting” is a term for any festive decorations made of fabric, they can often be used for wedding decorations, check out this interesting site. http://www.bigbeautifulbunting.co.uk/

So, these can be a form of art.

Here is a blog about textile’s, while includes a refernce to them. In fact, there are good few blogs out there about textile art, here are a few of them

I guess what Im trying to say, is that textiles are a fantastic source of art ispiration, and an amazing art medium also.

The above tibetan imagery is always inspiring… but the ones below are perhaps more familiar images!!

These minor works of art, alone, can seem plain, but when hanging in the wing and blowing, are inspiring- and they are a real part of traditional culture!!

They are always used at weddings. See here for some other wedding art ideas- oil portraits from wedding photo’s

    In february 08 I was representing http://www.portraitxpress.com (the bespoke art company I run in my spare time) at The National Wedding Show in Olympia, London, UK, for 3 days.
    The national wedding show (see http://www.nationalweddingshow.co.uk) is the UK’s number one wedding show, for couples planning to get hitched. From over the moon to the honeymoon, from your dream dress to the world’s most romantic resorts – there’s nothing quite like the National Wedding Show to help you make your big day everything you’ve imagined. It’s all laid out for you under one roof – dresses, groomswear, occasionwear, accessories, photography, flowers, honeymoon destinations, venues, cakes and much, much more. It’s a brilliantly useful, inspirational and fun day out. So, Portrait Xpress exhibited for the first time there this year in February 08. They had a stand where they displayed a number of examples of their hand-painted wedding portrait paintings. A real buzz was generated at the stand, and dozens of couples were standing around, imagining what a portrait painting might look like of their wedding day. A number of people asked about our Portrait Xpress gift vouchers, which can be used … and could even be put on the wedding Bridal List of ‘wished for’ items for the bride and groom. A competition was also run on the stand which was very popular, and one lucky couple won a free painting. There was also interest from some of the Uk Wedding press.
