Day 4 – Classes and adventures

Day 4 we had a morning class with Mary Jane working with the colourbox colors and making a wrist warmer – we talked colour theory, hues and tones and I learnt heaps in this class – actually enough to know that there is still a lot to learn – a huge amount.  But best just to dive in which I did.

*the colourbox challenge is a yearly challenge to use up to 7 colours Hazel Tindell explains it better than I could over here

Diewke brought treats from Denmark which we had some fun with during the class

We then hopped on the bus for a drive north for an amazing walk along the cliffs – my brain is so overloaded I forgot where this is – will update when I work it out

A tour of the Shetland tannery where they make the most delicious slippers and quite a few came home with members of the tour group – Pru was relieved to have something apart from her duckfeet to wear at night – and far more elegant than an ugg….

We then stopped at Mavis Grind where 33m separate the Atlantic ocean and the North sea

Then onto Frankies for fantastic fish and chips – can you see the wonderful spelling mistake in the last row…..

with apologies to all those over the ditch whom we treasure – but Russell Crowe is still yours and not ours (the scars of Eucalyptus run deep)

Then we made our way back to Lerwick and the Shetland Museum for a rather special talk by Kate Davies and Ella Gordon on their vintage knitwear collections and collecting – that is the rather amazing Felicity Ford there on the far left who displayed the garments during the talk.

It was great!!!!

 

Hopefully it will be up on the internet and if you can get a chance to watch it do – Ella is a hoot and Kate is just quite amazing – watch the bit about the moths in the question sections……
