And yet another textile technique ...
... as if I hadn't got enough to keep me out of mischief already.
The visit to Eyam included looking round the craft centre there. This includes Woolgathering, a lovely little workshop specialising in feltmaking and yarns and related gadgets.. I found this kit for stickweaving, (not the yarn, that's mine), and was shown how to use them by the friendly proprietor.

It's an abstract piece, based on seaside colours, the somewhat unrealistic ones you have in your head, you know, the sky is blue, the sea is green, the sand is yellow etc, etc. The woven strips will be hung on a piece of worn stick found on a beach, and may have beads added, or a shell or two.
