Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful space. It was such a special day and I felt it resonating out into the following week. I was reminded again how important it is to make time to connect with like minded souls, as well as my surrounding environment, and how well it makes me feel to do so.” – Environmental art course participant
“Nurturing, inspirational, creative, deep, wonderful!, it was so very soothing, just to be. – Art-in-nature course participant
“What you brought to the gathering was wonderful – thanks!” – Edge of the Wild Ecopsychology Gathering participant
It was then over to us to select our colour schemes, not an easy task… lots of overflowing baskets of wool to choose from. We were told we could use yarns 2 or 3 at a time, making design/colour choice even more difficult!. It took some rows to get into a rhythm and it was easy to find you had undone a row rather than added one. The edges also proved a little tricky to keep neat but again, trial and error came into its own. Colours were changed when you felt like it or to your design. Whilst we were working Jess told us some stories and legends about weaving and the Navajo people and the history. ” –Navajo inspired weaving workshop, American museum in Bath
