We are fortunate to have caught Kay Faulkner on her way home to Australia after her teaching tour in the U.S. A weaver of diverse interests known for her work with woven shibori and her unforgettable purple and silver candy wrapper yardage at the Denver Convergence. Her article on the Sotis Cloth of West Timor is in the latest edition of Handwoven.
This is a unique opportunity to share a day of creative fun playing at the loom with this
internationally known weaver.
