Arts Trail 6 - Weaving


Once inside the Victoria Hall, it proved hard to hang on to my money!  There were over 60 artists and craftspeople exhibiting, in the biggest Makers' Fair the Arts Trail has ever hosted, three large rooms full of stalls.  The products on display were of the highest quality - exquisite and unique pieces of work.  There were jewellers, handwoven textiles, woodworkers, leather workers, ceramics, printing and bookbinding and hosts of other specialisms.  Some of the artists were also demonstrating their craft too.  My picture shows Agnis Smallwood, a talented young textile designer, using a vintage handweaving machine with which she was making a lovely, slubby scarf.

  1. You're not supposed to hang on to your money. Hopefully you bought a little something to keep them going.

  2. Lovely photo -- Agnis could grace a Flemish or Dutch painting.
