Hello. Got my crafty head on again, I am waking up with art and craft on my mind at the moment. I must tel you about a great web site, and lots of videos on yoootooob called Craft in America. If you are fed up of crappy TV programmes, switch off and get yourself on the computer, and check out the delicious selection of arty crafty videos on offer.
They are all about 55 minutes long, and are broken down into categories exploring every kind of craft imaginable. All materials are covered, you meet the artists, learn something about their backgrounds, their histories, they tell their own stories, and you will be amazed by their creative talents.
I'll put one on here as a taster, it's entitled THREADS. It starts off mainly with weaving and dyeing, but don't miss the last part, it starts at 44 minutes, Terese Agnew. Stunning work.
The Craft in America web site is here.
That's got my entertainment sorted for the next few weeks, so much to learn so much to inspire me. I'm like a kid in a sweet shop.
Thanks for popping in, I'm off to do some crafting. We'll catch up soon.
Fitzwilliam, Nostell Priory, and Hessle
