Auto Draft

This month we have Angie show us all the background to her amazing final show pieces for the Morley College Textile course.

She took her inspiration from rusty metals – the texture and colours.  

These circular saw blades  sparked her imagination.

Angie talked about the course and showed us 3 huge folders that contained her samples, notes and ideas. She then mentioned there were several more of these folders at home and that all the students were initially given a single folder to record their ideas.  She was so enthusiastic about the work that she spent vast amounts of time working on her samples and ideas to fill all these books.  She explained the structure of the course and the various elements including dyeing, embroidery sewing and knitting as well as drawing.

Several club members went to the course final show held, unusually,  at South Bank University, not Morley College due to renovation work in progress.

The focus of her work was knitting with wire using the colourse and texture derived from her inspiration of the rusty metal surfaces.

Angie was absolutely inspirational – her enthusiasm and creativity shone through.

Programme During Covid-19 Pandemic

The club is meeting regularly - online - we have monthly Zoom coffee mornings on the second Wednesday of the month at 10:30 where we do a "show and tell" session and keep up to date with our members.

Due to the age profile of the membership there is not much likelihood of us having any face to face meetings in the foreseeable future. But we are considering having more content in our online meetings.

If you have not joined in so far it is very straightforward, Margaret sends out an email with a link and you need to click on it. It may ask you for the password which is in the email. You will need a device with a working camera if you are going to show anything you've made. A laptop computer, tablet computer or iPad are best but even a smartphone is possible.
