    Frances Crowe in her studio

This is an exciting new workshop here at The Benwiskin Centre!
Frances Crowe is a fibre artist who works in a variety of materials, paint, collage, mixed media.  She likes to collect materials such as wool, rope, cotton, and twist and weave them together to form individual, original works of art.

Frances says "The art of handwoven tapestry is many thousands of years old and, in that time the technique has remained virtually unchanged. What has changed and evolved over the centuries is the way in which the medium is used, the purity of its design and execution and the esteem."

The course content will include:-

Day 1
