The Spring gardens continue to enthral. The gardens are constantly changing as one batch of plants burst into bloom, reach their peak, then the flowers die and another starts.
Here is the latest batch of student weaving hot from the loom. We continue to celebrate their triumphs.
Del’s rug hot off the loom. Everyone is standing back to admire it.

An exciting project is underway in the weaving studio: The Sturt community rug project. The aim is to weave two rugs 2 x 3 metres for Sturt Cottage. It is also to be a community project where anyone young or old, male or female can come and participate.
Yarn is dyed.
Joan and Julie from “Friends of Sturt” ball the yarn. It has been great to be able to call on their assistance to do all that preparation.
Julie Gillick, Head of Frensham and Winifred West Schools throws the shuttle for the first row.
Indra, a non weaver has her turn. Several others have participate. All get to write their name in the “Visitor’s Book”.
We reach half way on the first rug and toast our achievement.
