GUILD NEWS

August meeting

A lovely display of weaving this month -Jackie won the award, Rachel was second. Photos on the gallery page.  And, another amazing shared lunch!

We were treated to a lovely demonstration and display of Sakiori  weaving by Angela who won the Bursary this year and went on a course at the Saori Shed at Diss to learn this technique. Saki means to tear and ori means to weave.

There will be a more detailed piece in the newsletter next month, below are some photos of the weaving and equipment.

The two jackets Angela has made so far.

Weaving on the loom

The tool that cuts the fabric and 2 sets of blades for different size strips.

September Meeting; Our speaker Jennifer Talbot: Talk and workshop on Design inspired by Shetland.  A very interesting talk and display of work using fine felt and embroidery for wall hangings and framed work.
