I thought I would share these photos of two days of fibre workshops that I ran this week.  We all had such a good time, and it was great to see people learning new skills, and indeed, to make new like-minded friends.  As you can see, afternoon tea (served in bone china cups!), with home made cake was an extremely important part of our day.  These were 'taster' days and students were given the opportunity, first of all to have a go at art journalling, and then to look at raw fleece (alpacas were leaping around the grounds!), do dyeing, spinning, weaving and felting.  I think I sent some people away with swirling brains....but no one was bored that's for sure!! By the way I have now , finally, got my larger loom .  It was obviously meant to be - not only did I receive a totally unexpected cheque in the post for the exact amount - but an hour after ordering it, my friend posted that she had exactly what I wanted for sale at greatly reduced price.  I hastily cancelled my original order and am now the proud owner of loom no. 2. I have just started a new jacket and will post pictures next week.  x
