June Update

I was very fortunate to attend Tom Knisely's Weft Faced Rug Workshop at the OHS event of Panoply 2015 held in Burlington May 21 and 22.

This pre-event 2 day workshop was held at the Burlington Art Gallery in the room that houses the Burlington Handweavers and Spinners. What a beautiful facility!! Really inspirational. Art everywhere you wandered and looked.

In one of the galleries the weavers had their display set up with wonderful weavings

We didn't have to worry about bringing a table loom, but were able to walk in and sit down to pre warped floor looms. Just perfect.

Tom was just as you would expect - gracious and full of knowledge - and most willing to share his craft. He even signed my copy of his rug book.

I had a wonderful 2 days and soaked up lots of info.
