Rag Rug Workshop

Well, I have done diddly squat over the past couple of days re my assignment.  I HAVE collected together some study materials and gone to the library to pick up key books.  Tonight I will try to find the moodle PP on Primo Levi and scan for some academic articles tomorrow.  I was thinking of legging it up to Plymouth to support the Pride Day up there, but I really should get on with my work (could go to library and read about the psychology of imprisonment, but tbh I am not sure where to start).

The reason for my absence is that I have been on a ray rug course and absolutely loved it.  Still filling in the gaps and have really got into all of this.  There is something very tribe-like about gathering in a small group and making something decorative.  The lady in charge does weaving and felt making too.  My ears pricked up at her longer course - a 10 week starter course in textiles which include the following; batik, weaving, felting, knitting, crochet, intro to a sewing machine amongst other things.  Price was good and I have said provisionally BOOK ME IN!!!!

I will post my finished product when done - I am quite pleased with it and I know that practice will make perfect if I continue. Squeeeeee!!!!
