Louise Martin- Tapestry weaver.
Ros Bryant - Tapestry and stone.

The Westray landscape abounds with evidence of human life and work from the Neolithic to the present. We will make visits to known sites and others that remain covert, and have access to finds. In the field and back in the studio, we will be experimenting with different ways to express our responses within the language of weave.
Suitable for people with or without experience of weaving.

Ros Bryant and Louise Martin
Come and explore the 'Queen' of the Orkney Isles.
As we work on Westray’s white sandy beaches or the high, nesting cliffs of Noup, bird life will fill the air. Through daily excursions we will discover the islands riches, both past and present, finding new ways to capture landscape in weave.
The course is suitable for new or experienced weavers who are keen to explore.

Weave and Stone
with Louise Martin and Ros Bryant
This unique course is an exciting collaboration between a tapestry weaver and a stone carver.
We will begin in weave, maybe binding stone, weighting warps, interpreting texture, colour and marks - and progress to making marks on stone - scoring, chiselling, polishing, drilling in a two-way dialogue between the elements.
Workshop fee £400
