The following pictures are of items created from our Tuesday group of ladies. The scarf by Faye was hand spun and woven using Merino and Cashmere wool. It will be a Christmas present for her lucky family in America.
The kookaburra was crocheted by Margaret. It will be taken to a little boy in Scandinavia along with a book called Fabulous Aussie Fables. The book was written and illustrated by another of our members named Julie.
This board of imaginative wet felting was created by the students of the Special Education Centre of Henry Kendall High School. Some of our members assisted the students in learning wet felting. Quite a strenuous task. The students were quite pleased with their colourful results.
Lee has created a mat by weaving together her hand-spun and dyed wool. The mat was woven on a stick weaving loom and then stitched together. The hand woven wool was dyed various colours using black beans, onion peels, turmeric, avocados and flowers. The result is a very thick, unique and rustic mat.
Our talented crocheters have been hard at work creating new and exciting projects. Well done to Debbie and Margaret. Scraps of yarn can always be turned into a work of art.
This is Helen. She is proudly holding her finished quilt. She is a new comer to the world of quilting. This quilt will eventually be donated to the community. It was made from material donated to the guild. Well done Helen and well done to the ladies who assisted her in this task.
These two photos were taken in Canberra during the last winter. It is called yarn bombing. Does it add to nature? You be the judge!
This photo shows an installation in Lithgow. It makes a tree lined avenue into an art gallery.
