We had a nice workshop day at Pat Williams' studio yesterday. Five people joined Pat and me for a lively day of discussions about tapestry. As a special treat we took a short field trip to Grace Episcopal Church in Clarkesville, home of five beautiful tapestry woven kneelers that Pat did a few years back. All of the workshop photos were taken with my phone so are a bit fuzzy... sorry about that!
Pat explains her commission for the kneelers to our group. Later we helped Pat cut off her latest tapestry--Rosemary clips a few of the warp ends here:
Back at home today, I took a quick walk around Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega (where we are visited by around 100,00 people over the weekend). Here's a view looking from the square toward the university. Ambling through the crowds and then making this blog post is my way of procrastinating from putting up all of the things I took to Pat's for the workshop! I also made a quick post to the Tapestry Share blog about a couple of recent frame loom modifications I've made with my Hagen and my Mirrix loom... check it out here, if you want to.
OK... time to get busy!
