Colours of Highland

Stephanie HoyleChat, event reports, member's projects

To start off this gallery Alison M has sent a picture of a tapestry weaving inspired by late sun on the hills. She used a variety of yarns, including Harris yarns and wool left over from the Scottish tapestry panel she was involved in stitching. She sent two pictures and I’m including both as I’m intrigued by the difference the background makes. I’ve just added some lovely pictures from Alison R of her weaving. The inspiration for each (shown in the photos attached to the cloth) is as follows: Fingal’s Cave on Staffa; the view from Fortrose towards Fort George; 2 views of Loch Ness from the great Glen Way; 2 views of Bettyhill; sunrise and sunset over the Beauly Firth; North Kessock woods. Denise spun and knitted her cardigan during lockdown. The fibre is BFL and Shetland.
