Brownies visit Oxheys for weaving

Last week a group ( of Brownies from Preston visited my space at Oxheys Mills Studios.

After a look around the current exhibition from the BIPP (British Institute of Prefesseional Photographers), and a short introduction to the Studios, the girls and leaders had a tour of the building to see what our resident artists get up to during their working day.

We settled into my studio at two large tables loaded with a host of different textures and colours of yarn, and after a short demonstration everyone began to weave.

Even the leaders got stuck in to the activity!

As some of the pieces made in chunkier yarn were finished, there was a short demonstration about how to finish the weaving and remove it from the card, then it was time to pack up and take the work home to finish.

It was a pleasure to have such interested, well-behaved girls at the studio making fantastic textile art – well done everyone!
