Some new wool & alpaca shawls showing where the colour inspiration comes from. You can find more details in my shop. Mostly sold out now!
Thank you to every body who came to visit me at the Meet Your Maker Event at the Haining, over the weekend. It was lovely to see so many enthusiastic people wanting to learn to weave! The youngest was 2 years and 9 months ( helped by her aunt!) and the oldest used to work in the Selkirk woollen mills many years ago. It was lovely to meet you all. Here are a few memories of the weekend.
I have just completed the Craft Scotland’s ‘ Meet Your Maker ‘ weekend in St Andrews Museum. It was great fun meeting people of all ages and showing them how to weave on a table loom. I shared the space with Sean and Christine from Butter Wynd Pottery who make beautiful pots and plates from local Fife clay. I learnt a thing or two about pottery making as well! It was a great opportunity to share our craft skills. Here are a few photographs of the weekend’s events.
I am taking part in Craft Scotland’s ‘Meet Your Maker’ event on the weekend of 7th – 8th September 2013, at St Andrews Museum in Fife.
Eight different venues across Scotland will be show casing the work of 14 different craft makers. It’s a chance to meet the makers and learn about their inspirations, design process and techniques behind their craft. I will be demonstrating weaving and visitors (both young and old) will be able to have a go for for themselves.
Look forward to seeing you there!
