Saturday I left the garden behind and drove down the road to the art barn located between Union Town and the town of Coleton. I took my spinning wheel with me because I had been invited to demonstrate wool being spun into yarn. It was a day full of spring-time squalls as I drove to the art show in the renovated barn .....
|Some local grandeure. I love to see the gracious old ones being taken care of so well.|
|Some of this year's lambs.|
|Upon heading inside I found. . . .|
|Displays of beautiful work by talented people|
|All done in natural textiles since the show was about making art from natural materials|
|Work underway. A close-up of her fine wool strips looped through burlap in the process of being made into a new rug.|
|A large floor rug|
|Her work. Look at the colors and the shapes she gets from working the colors together. There is no top stitching or embroidery etc. Just hooked wool strips.|
|Here you can see the backside of one of Louraine's rugs flipped on top of the front side. She neatly finishes the edges to complete the rug. They will last lifetimes!|
I will share more in my next blog as I don't want to make this too long. More fiber artists later. Stay tuned!
