Guild meeting and talk: Northern Lights – Sámi Band Weaving
October 31 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
In this talk Susan Foulkes takes us to the Frozen North with an introduction to Sámi history and their band weaving tradition. Their woven band designs are colourful expressions of a delight in the beauty of small things and their rigid heddles and distinctive shuttles were made from reindeer antler. Susan will also be leading a balloted one-day workshop on Sámi band weaving on Sunday 1st November.
