The students on Jenny Dean’s year-long natural dye course at Ditchling Museum report on their experiences, and there is an in-depth look at Gotland sheep – characterful animals with fleece to match. Sandra King introduces a range of traditional Irish sheep breeds and tells us about her involvement in raising the profile of handspinning and weaving in Ireland. Across the world, Sandra De Berduccy’s holistic approach draws on the natural and cultural environment of the Andes in her innovative textiles. New graduate, Marcia B John, tells us what inspired her to weave and presents the work she showed at New Designers and the Surface Design Show.
There are reviews of a couple of online exhibitions and the Guild Highlights and Readers’ Showcase focus on what Guild members have achieved in lockdown.
