I have just visited Marilyn's blog and read the statement by one of her students. It is inspiring, describing how tapestry can be viewed as art and how much intellectual engagement there must be when weaving.
The tapestry is beautiful also.
I am finding that tapestry weaving engages me thoroughly. It is similar to becoming engrossed in working with Photoshop and not surfacing for hours. This can be very bad for the poor, stiff back. We have been taught simple exercises to do but I have to surface enough to remember to do them. It is not until I go to stand up and actually move around that I realise how long I have been sitting.
