Our 29th October speakers, Denise Stevens and Joy Dodd, will show various textiles, yarns, basket weaving and photographs from their textile tour of Northern Thailand and Laos earlier this year. The group visited experts in textile dyeing and weaving in both countries. They were privileged to visit several villages in northern Laos and watch women weaving elaborate patterns with cotton and silk. They participated in dyeing handwoven fabric with natural dyes, learnt about the traditional dress of various ethnic minority groups and also had many opportunities to purchase examples of their products! Hear all about their amazing journey at our next meeting from 2pm. As always, the Guild rooms are open from 10am on meeting days and the mini-workshop starts at 1pm.
