Janice asked me about the summer school – we are a group of textile artists – some teachers and tutors, some have written books, most of us blog and we all belong to a private Yahoo group.  Some have met before but we have never managed to get together for a week.  Unfortunately not everyone could  make it but 13 of us did (one ran off early before I got a picture), we came mainly from the UK, but also France and Austria.  The group also has members in the USA, Australia and Sweden.

Throughout the week we all shared our skills – Paulene showed us how to print and we used her pasta machine which worked really well.  Here is a leaf print I made – I loved this.

This was our main workroom.

Gill demonstrating the Docucam in the second room.  During the evenings we could sit in here watching DVD’s, crocheting and often drinking a glass of wine.  Nothing was too planned, nothing was obligatory. We all got on so well and there was much nattering and laughing.
