Last weekend we both attended the opening of the Threads of Influence exhibition at Sturt Craft Centre in Mittagong. The exhibition was to celebrate 50, years of teaching in the Weaving Workshop, primarily the teaching by Elisabeth Nagel. Elisabeth came to teach at Sturt in 1959 and has only stopped this year due to an accident. The exhibition included the recent works of 5 other weavers who have worked in the Weaving workshop with her.
Liz Williamson (Resident 1991) also exhibited recent work.

That is one of the things I most love about lacroix's work the colours are what most people would call missed matched I love it.
So thinking ahead to sample something small I am going to start with purple in a range of shades and add one or two different complimentary or should I say clashing colours. Now looking at my image maybe I have to add grey and brown, colours taken from the fur trim.
