In Our Studio

In March 2013, we rented a studio in Northlight Art Studios in Hebden Bridge.

30 November and 1 December: We spent the weekend in our studio, as part of Northlight Christmas Open Studios. There were not as many visitors as in previous years, apparently, but we did make contact with a few people who expressed an interest in learning to spin. It was pleasant having the time to spin or weave; Pete took a few photos.

19 November: Britain enjoyed a summer in 2013 for the first time in years! As a result, we rather neglected the studio. We did manage to take our folding floor loom down there, and a Pete wove a couple of bathmats.

7 July: We were away at Woolfest for the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival and missed all but the final day of the Open Studios weekend. However, we were in our studio on that day, and enjoyed meeting people.

24 April: Pete arranged our dyed merino tops in colour sequence and commenced drum carding some into batts:

29 March: Table and shelves assembled and in place, and we're about ready to use the studio:

28 March: After re-painting the walls and a trip to Ikea:

19 March: This was the empty space:
