Time to try to share my 3 week textile spree in England. Week 1 was spent in Bath at the first ever 'Bath Textile Summer School'!
The school was organized by the talented and delightful Lynn Roche of Lynn and Michael Roche Dollmakers
Every day was special.
...but I thought I'd begin with photos of a beautiful casket in the Holburne Museum Collection.
Our opportunity to view this casket was arranged by Marjan Kuyken a friend from the Casket of Curiosities Class. In the photo above you see Marjan, me, Jane Bawn, (the 3 casketeers) and Jenny Adin-Christie my embroidery teacher extraordinaire for the second part of the textile school. (More on classes later!)
The tortoise shell frame around each embroidery is beautiful.
