UK Lecture Tour April-June 2014

Exciting trip planned: A New Lecture and Workshop series to the UK in April-June 2014
If you are a UK Guild, this is your one and only chance. Priscilla Lowry will be bringing new talks and workshops and the long awaited third book THE WORLD OF SILK, publication date, end of March 2014 in time for the big trip.
There are wonderful new talks and lectures like The WOW Factor, Designing Your Work to Win, or Is it Art or Is It Craft as well as all the silk, textile or Medieval topics, all are there on the Silk Talks page for you to choose from.
Perhaps you would like to combine a talk with a workshop. The Flash Jacket Workshop has been a run-away success, the most fun. We take an old jersey and cut it up and change it to make it fit, add knitting or other items to embellish it and turn it into a jacket or vest or something quite different, a Work of Art.
Perhaps you would prefer a Knitting Workshop and the little Silk Evening Purse is not only the cutest thing, but it is so easy and can be changed to different sizes, colours, and be the base for endless variations.
Perhaps your real need is a Refresher Course in Silk, all is available, spinning, knitting, designing, just take a look on the Workshop page.
Choose from the list or ask for something special to be planned to fit in with the interests of your Guild, be it Spinners, Weavers and Dyers, Embroiderers, Patchworkers or Quilters, Feltmakers, Silk Painters, Textile or service groups like Women’s Institutes, Probus, etc.
