Fascinating and addictive – 18 March 2016

We have oft seen Sandra weaving intricate items on her inkle loom,  when she is not already otherwise busy contributing to the life of the Guild and we have marvelled at the wonderful results.

At our recent workshop, with the assistance of Jenny, she unlocked some of the mysteries of inkle weaving for us, an ancient craft that even back then deserved several mentions by Shakespeare.

We had a really instructive workshop and learnt that in addition to being portable and accessible, inkle weaving can risk becoming addictive, but do not let this put you off having a go.

Thank you Sandra and Jenny for a really great day.
