The Life Creative: an artisan’s studio

S0135397 collage

I was privileged to visit the studio of a friend who has marvellous creative abilities for a variety of mediums, including tapestry – but not just your store-bought variety of tapestry, she very cleverly creates the whole, from stringing the warp to freestyling the weft from a “map” of her chosen design.

The day I visited, there was a rainbow of coloured yarns strewn (in orderly fashion) across her workspace, and she showed me the original inspiration for her design, which is based on an image of geological deposits on the moon. Amazing!

It was a honour to be permitted into her space to see how she worked.
