Thread and Thrift at Chateau Dumas
Selvedge magazine kindly asked me to teach at Chateau Dumas in the south of France this summer. I am just back from teaching a lively and kind hearted bunch of students from all over the world who wholly embraced the philosophy of using old things to create textile collages while we revelled in the luxury of staying in a beautiful location and being served wonderful food. These pictures, and I appreciate there are many, give you a feeling of what the students were up to. The work is all theirs not mine! I have given them many projects to finish and hopefully they do not have time to read this but are working away finishing off their creations. Many of these pictures illustrate work in process. Thank you Beverley, Rema, Lesley, Liz, Sally, Joy, Melanie, Cindy, Alison, Ann, Karen, Cathy and Lynne.It was great to work with you and please look after Julie well if she happens to come to stay with you.
