Photographing the photographer!

Simon Caplan came up from Bristol today to take some professional photographs for Heritage Crafts Association. This was for the weaving activity I submitted for their Teachers Resource Pack, but the brief also included images of me at my loom and some of my work. We had great fun and I highly recommend him.

Check him out on www.simoncaplanphotography.co.uk

I look forward to seeing the finished images but until then, here are some shots I took of him!!

Exciting news!

Heritage Crafts Association, a UK wide organization that promotes craft makers and their work, has chosen one of my school weaving activities to include in their new Teachers Resource Pack. This is a new idea to help school children between the ages of 7 – 12 years learn more about countryside crafts and have a go for themselves. There are to be 6 different case studies on different crafts and a set of instructions with photographs to show teachers how to carry out each activity in their schools.

I am very excited that they have chosen my weaving ideas. A professional photographer is coming up to take pictures in June.
