A Beautiful Scarf

Paddy Younge came to the Duchy a couple of weeks ago to do a day's textile design course with me. We worked on her chosen picture and did some simple exercises and Paddy was so enthused she wanted to come back straight away and dye a warp. She made her warps (two) at home and brought them into the studio, we dyed them, steamed them and Paddy went home to weave them up. This is the result - stunning! The photo on top of Paddy wearing her scarf is the chained warp dyed.

This afternoon Paddy, Sarah, Val, Sue and I had great fun at the start of the dyeing course (Thursday afternoons, 13.00-16.00). We have room for a couple more, if anyone is interested...
