What a great weekend! Fun and creative students! In Letchworth, UK.
Last year, the National Museum of Scotland, in Edinburgh, acquired my piece "Shelter" for their World Cultures Gallery. Today I visited. I am so very chuffed (proud) and pleased.
Wow! A busy and very productive two days! These are experienced makers who showed off their talents!

Thanks to the UK Basketmaker's Association and Westhope Craft College in Shropshire, we had a wonderful few days of weaving, dining, and laughter. And of course special thanks to Sally Roach for arranging it all.
What a treat to join Sally Roach and Janice Brooklyn, both UK basket makers, to see Lois Walpole's exhibition at the Broadway Gallery in Letchworth Garden City, UK.
Some of Lois' words: "My work has always been about the wasted potential of materials that we regard as having no further use. Protecting the environment is one of the message that I hope the work conveys, but it also questions our attitude to consumerism and what makes us decide what is rubbish."
