Sunny Sunday




Sitting in my garden, soaking up the sun and recovering from another week at West Dean.

This time it was a really intense, full week course of Creative Development.  A Textile Workshop with two tutors, one a tapestry weaver and one an experimental embroiderer. The idea was to integrate aspects of the work of both tutors.  I've never tried any sort of weaving before so the learning curve was steep.

We had four days of uninterupted studio time - incredibly concentrated work, but hugely enjoyable.  An opportunity to experiment and debate.  I came away with two 'works in progress' which I'm keen to continue with as they are both looking at ways of adding my hand stitching to an assemblage of warps and wefts. 


  1. It sounds very interesting. Glad you had time for a rest in the garden while the weather's so nice.

    1. Hi Jo,

      I plan to spend a lot of time in the garden over the next few weeks, there is plenty of work to do out there and I have no more West Dean or Open University courses until the end of the summer.
