Just back from a wonderful week away at my most favorite place in the world – Loch Fyne.. It didn’t matter about the weather or the midges – we had a great time!
While we were there I did a little day trip to Loch Gilphead to meet another contemporary weaver Louise Oppenheimer whose work I have seen online on various sites. She has a studio set up at her home near Loch Gilphead.
I had never met Louise before – she was very gracious in letting us visit out with her open studio times and it was a delight to talk ‘tapestry’ with her.
Her Studio is a very light and airy extension to her house – and the walls are literally filled with sumptuos flow of colour…..
Her wool and materials collection made me smile as its similar to mine and I often feel guilty for having so much – but I don’t now! It waqs great talking tapestry to Louise and its obvious she is very passionate about tapestry weaving – she is full of ideas and has many little pen line ideas in her sketchbooks – her tapestries as well as colour are full of natural rythm and pattern which seduce you as you look at them.
