I enjoy weaving pictures based on seascapes and landscapes. A selection of my pictures is available at North Farm Gallery in the Isles of Scilly. I also like weaving scarves and experimenting with some of the many possibilities with this amazing craft
.I plan to be at Abingdon Craft Fair (8-10 November) and at Ardington School of Crafts Winter Fair on 24 November. I will be demonstrating and letting people have a go weaving as well as selling scarves and pictures. Members of the Oxford and Kennet Valley Guilds will also be spinning at Abingdon
Students can enrol for either day or both. You will weave samples on rigid heddle and four shaft looms On Saturday we will make a warp for a 4 shaft loom and wind it on and you will have the opportunity to experiment with the techniques I use for weaving pictures, On Sunday we will complete threading a 4 shaft loom and put a warp on a rigid heddle loom. You will have the opportunity to try textured weaves such as Leno which can be woven on either type of loom. For more details go to www.ardingtonschool.com
