tools of the trade

You really can't get much lower tech than tapestry weaving! A wooden stretcher, scissors, a few nails hammered into a piece of wood to put spools of thread on, a ruler and a water soluble pencil (for marking the warp). Oh another essential - nasty, pink 'flesh' coloured elastane support gloves. Not photogenic - you don't want to see those!

I have revamped my website - please have a look.

Happy Birthday! I saw some stunning tapestries today and thought of you :) Craigie Horsfield at Frith Street Gallery -they were so incredible. I was allowed to take some pics which I will post on my blog tomorrow.
