When I first joined the guild workshops titled “Corners” had me totally confused. How to make corners? In what medium? But soon I found this quirky title to be a gathering of four different mini workshops which you can move between as you like, doing all or just one if you prefer. This last workshop, which I sadly missed, was a fun gathering of 3 different tutored corners and one busy social area where there seems to have been many spinning wheels!
We had Corner 1: Bev from Handspinner Having Fun, Broadford, Skye who brought a range of fibres for participants to try and/or buy.
Corner 2: Rene Gibson from Achmore tutoring the spinning of alpaca.
Corner 3: Sara Smith from Rosemarkie who made us a stack of wee Quilt Weaver Looms, as seen on the day of Teresinha Robert’s talk, and showed how to use them.
Corner 4: A social corner with many spinning wheels and much chattering!
Thank you to Serena and Catherine for the photographs!
