Linda showed us the beautiful weaving she is currently working on for her Studio Textiles and Design course, Glennis showed us some of the work she is doing for the SWTAFE tapestry course, Marion got on with some of her en plein air weaving (not outdoors today, finishing off a piece started earlier) and I got some advice on a design I am thinking about doing (after I complete my course, only 6 weeks to go!).

As you can see, the venue was bright and comfortable. There is a good library there as well as dyeing, spinning and weaving supplies for sale.
We also discussed future directions for the group. There were two calls for entries that we looked at and have decided to go with the tapestryweaversoz one, based on circles and squares (the 2012 file). So the idea is to think about how we might approach the topic and bring along ideas for the next meeting. This will be a good incentive to start a visual diary on the topic.
I have had a fascination with optical illusions for a while, so I might play around with that for a while. After I do all my other work that is due for various courses.
