Weave It! Felt It! Part Two

The raffles were won by our own members and everyone went home happy.


Weave It! Felt It!

As usual weavers and felters combined to put on a display to coincide with Garden Marlborough. For various reasons fewer of us than usual participated this year but it all worked well. The display seemed quite spacious when we finished setting it up but after the first couple of sessions more work appeared and what might have been gaps were magically filled with colour and texture.  We had some sales and everyone concerned was very happy.

Christine Holdaway made a cute pair of felted booties during her time on duty.
More photos to come soon.

Meg Shows Her Colours

"Nobody believes me when I insist my first preference is
achromatic/analogous weaving. And galleries request colourful pieces. 
I'm contemplating a color strike in 2013."

New Work from Peg Moorhouse

Peg's latest hangings are based on linen that is the colour of the Queen Charlotte Sound outside her window on a brilliant day.  The embellishment on this one gives it a carnival atmosphere.
And here it is good to see a focus on the damask structure that is Peg's trademark.
