The Silk Route

You can see my handpainted silks at the Hobart Gallery, Blickling Hall, Aylsham, Norfolk from May 25th to June 5th every day from 10.30 am to 5 pm. I will be exhibiting with other members of the Norfolk Craft Guild so you will be able to see crafts in ceramics, marquetry, hand smocking, knitwear, raffia hats and bags, jewellery, wood turning and wooden toy making, fused glass, embroidered textiles, linocut prints, cross stitched pictures, beadwork, bronze resin sculptures and hand made cards. Something for everybody!

Sheena's scarf

I can put the progress pics on the blog now that Sheena has received her scarf from Sarah!
The warp tied and spaced.
Beginning the weave with the weft yarn of alpaca and cotton.
Adding the inlay yarn, a hand dyed pure wool.
The inlay yarn was added along the length at random intervals.
The finished scarf off the loom.
