winter hit woody point hard this weekend. heavy snow was falling during the 2 day workshop with anna torma at the merchant warehouse building. such a different feeling from a month ago when i was teaching. the warm sunlight flooding in. what i wanted and what i learned was how to loosen up my stitches. anna makes huge embroidered textile pieces. uses her needle and thread like a paint brush. makes bold statements with a million tiny stitches.
we kept ourselves warm with good conversation, bright colours from anna's hand dyed silk threads. and plenty of delicious food from stan and jenny all weekend long.
