(Oops. I have now edited this post to include the photos that should have been in it! my apologies…..)
The studio has been really busy over the last couple of months. Amongst other things, I’ve made a custom guitar strap, some cloth of hand spun wedding dress strips, some slightly Art Deco geometric wall pieces and a few little bookmarks.
The spinning wheel has been busy too, making threads from merino/silk and also from some lovely wool from B’s sheep, whose names are ‘white spot’ and ‘bad hair day’.
….and off the loom, possible new work is emerging and developing inside a tiny sketchbook.
The Wednesday weaving students have been really busy too with beautiful scarves, table mats, rugs, tapestries and tea towels.
Phew! time for a little break to recharge the batteries. Weaving class will begin again at the end of July. Ka kite.
