Alyth Crafts Group will resume meeting on Thursday 30 August
in the Community Wing, St Andrews Street at 10.30 a.m. The sessions
last two hours.
Everyone is welcome whatever your interest is in hobbies, crafts
or even arts!
Since starting up at the stART Festival in Spring of this year
members have demonstrated to each other glass engraving, quilting,
beadwork and water colour painting. We have also had a demonstration
of handloom weaving by Ashley Slater of Blairgowrie.
Do you want to learn any of the above skills or see which new
skills come along? Would you like to continue your craft hobby
in good company? Why not join this latest group to establish
itself in Alyth?
If you need more information ring Hilda Adam on 01828 633287.
I started crafts in 1998 at Arts School. Starting in metal work and
ceramics, I finally specialized in textiles design crafts. I started
to learn to felt, the first main project being felt wares.
During this time I was a voluntary teaching assistant with an Art
organization for the learning disabilities. I moved to Scotland and
became interested in the textile history of the Strathmore area. From
research this inspired me to learn traditional Scottish crafts.
Starting with learning to spin my own fibres, the next stage was how
to use the fibres I had created, and this process developed into teaching
myself to use a rigged heddle weaving loom.
Once a month I attend the Ericht Spinners Group in Blairgowrie and
recently started attending the Alyth Crafts group.
My current specialism is loom woven scarves, which are all individually
designed. Anyone interested in a personal commissioned product, please
