Yesterday I went to a bleak and wet Rochester to see exhibition of work by weaver and textile designer Margo Selby at Rochester Art Gallery and Huguenot Museum. She was running a 'colour and stripe' workshop in the morning which looked fun and giving a talk in the afternoon which I went to with some friends.
'Lampas' technique initially developed and used by French Huguenot weavers for decorative brocade fabrics. There were also cases showing her design work and samples.
I couldn't resist buying this scarf in her trademark 3 dimensional fabric in silk and lycra - I just loved the colours and the 'patchwork' design . I'm a bit poorly at the moment (bland diet, no coffee, wine or chocolate!) and didn't make it to my painting class on Thursday so it cheered me up.
