Weaving at Frodsham

A group of our talented weavers enjoyed the opportunity of attending a Double Weave course tutored by the renowned weaver Riitta Sinkkonen Davies who had travelled from her home in Pembrokeshire.

You may remember Riitta being the guest speaker when we held an Open Day in September 2014.  Her description of her work with linen was fascinating and included details of her many commissions including the weaving the fine linen cloth used to make the rochet worn by Rowan Williams for his ordination as the Archbishop of Canterbury.

 

More details of Riitta’s work may be found here: https://riittaweaving.wordpress.com/commissions/

 

Some of the group also attend Lostock Weavers organised by Jane Flanagan.  Jane is a well known North West weaver who is a regular contributor to the British Fibre Art magazine.  There is a feature in Issue 12 (November/December2018), available in our Guild library, about the ‘Bountiful’ Exhibition held in October 2018.  The article contains photographs of work by our Guild.

 

Lostock Weavers Group meet at Lostock Parish Centre Tempest Road Lostock Bolton BL6 4EL.
