Stunning, quite literally !

Last Saturday was a real treat for our Members. We are fortunate in having Ros Wilson “on our doorstep” and she visited Dilham to talk to us about tapestry weaving. Ros has enhanced her creativity and talent by holidaying in Peru and taking classes with Maximo Laura, the world-renowned textile artist. Her work is stunning, quite literally !

At the end of the presentation Sharon looked across at the rest of the audience who, she said, were sitting in a trance-like state – in silence and with their mouths open (that’s got to be a first !) In fact, they were so “gob smacked” that none of them thought to take any pics !   So, Dear Readers, go onto Ros’ website (Ros Wilson Design) and see for yourselves – well worth a look !

Lots of Sticks

The time had come.  We’d enjoyed using our rigid heddle looms, made enough scarves for the population of the whole world, and even mastered pick up sticks.  We could put it off no longer. And so, fortified with Sharon’s cake, and filter coffee, Jenny introduced us to the alchemy that is four shaft weaving.  I will only divulge that it involves lots of different sticks, rubber bands, and bad language !  But oh !  the possibilities !
