Hi Mum,

First of all, Happy New Year and all that! Now that we are once again apart – you, weaving in the woods and me, finding novel ways to procrastinate in London – I’ll share with you some of the photos I took of our simple but cheerful Christmas in the countryside:

Of course, with every New Year comes changes, and I’m not just talking about the date. For many, this may mean denying oneself of foods that are both easily digested and easily pronounced, opting instead for the latest superfood fad (will somebody please clear up for me the definitive prenounciation of quinoa?!).

For us however, 2016  means that new Saori workshops and more weaving demonstrations are coming up. If any of our dear readers would like to have a go at weaving, they can either turn up to the Whitchurch Silk Mill (just one hour from London by train) between 10:30 – 16:30 every Tuesday for a demonstation, or for a deeper insight into Saori weaving and a take-away creation, they can try out one of our workshops. There are still tickets available for the workshop this Saturday, which will take place at the Fairground Craft & Design Centre in Andover at 10:30. The all-day experience will involve learning about Saori weaving, trying out different techniques and produce a unique woven scarf or wall hanging to take home, costing £60 including materials. For more details, or to book a place, our dear readers can get in touch via the contact form on this site.

Well it certainly looks like 2016 will be a busy year for us, Mum, but then as a wise person once said:

“I like being busy, as long as it’s fun.”
