Last week I mentioned that we might be exhibiting some of the work done in these sessions. I can now confirm that we'll be exhibiting in the cafe space at Dunoon Burgh Hall. We'll be having launch event on the evening of Thurs 13th September and then the work will be on display for a few weeks. So please make a note to pop in and have a look! If you'd like to come to our launch event, then head over to our Facebook Page and let us know by confirming your attendance on the Event tab.
In the meantime, below are some snaps of people collating their work in preparation:
This week was our final artist session! There are now only two more weeks of group work before the programme comes to an end. As you've probably guessed by the picture above, this week we were learning how to knit... No, only kidding! We were visited by Lorna Morrish of Lorna's Handwoven Tapestires, who taught us the delicate art of... well, hand weaving tapestries of course!
And let me tell you; it's a lot harder than it looks in the pictures below! We were learning only the very basics, on a very, very small frame and still we were left with homework at the end of the session. Lorna was kind enough to stay on for extra time and give advice and guidance, as well as show us the yet more complex art of weaving on a large frame. Lorna's passion for her craft was infectious and we all thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, doing our best to create something interesting using only lines and colours. It's funny how sometimes such strict limitations can unlock more creativity.
