And Now for Something Easier on the Eye!

Here is my sampler of African techniques

and my interpretation of a Xhosa tobacco bag




I learned so much about African textiles that I felt ashamed of the riches I have compared to the men and women who produce the wonderful pieces Mary Sleigh introduced me to.


Thank-you to Mary for opening my eyes and mind.

It was a very thoughtful workshop as well as a very useful one.

I took some snaps of your work. I think Mary and Jan were very thoughtful, interesting teachers and we were indeed very lucky to have spent that time with them. Glad your world has turned right-way-up again!!!!

Jealous, jealous, jealous! Did wonder whether I could sneak into summer school. Looks like you had a lovely time of it and produced some interesting things. Back to reality now heh? Sad not to have seen you again Julie
