Last weekend I visited the World Textile Day at Mundford. Again a long way to drive but some beautiful lengths of cloth were on display and the methods of construction explained in photos and lectures. I bought some interesting weaves and indigo fabric from the African Fabric Shop and just managed not to get another of ther fab baskets... I have three already!
I have been working on a piece for the contemporary group. It's based on "All in a Days Work" and I aim to reference the way women use textiles to keep their family warm. I have some pieces of old blanket, including mended bits, one with an eyelet where it was used as a door curtain in wartime... There are some old buttons, one a uniform fly button from grandma's button box!
