The next Guild meeting will be on Saturday, 28 July, 2018 at 2pm. The guest speaker will be Angharad Rixon. She is a historian who specialised in textile techniques; in particular lace, embroidery and decorative braids. She is interested in structures, surface treatments, textile materials and the survival of “dynamic” textile traditions. Angharad has taught various subjects including costume and textile history and textile techniques for design students and professionals both at Italian and international institutions. Angharad is the tutor for our Knit like a Viking and Tablet Weaving: Egyptian Diagonals Winter School classes. The Trader for the meeting will be The Yarn Bar. An online business based in Canberra which was created out of the passion to share that creative spirit. Sarah (a chemist by trade) and her daughter Meg run the shop. Come and have a look at what they have to sell. Dace is demonstrating Portugese knitting for the mini-workshop at 1:15pm. As always, you can come to the Guild rooms from 10.30 to buy, borrow, rent, enroll or just socialise. We look forward to seeing you!
