Cornwall Summer School

A wonderful week in Cornwall at Tremough Campus, Near Falmouth. where several hundred members of the Association of Weavers Dyers and Spiners were engaged in a week of Summer School courses, there was a huge variety of choice but I settled for "Dyeing the Blues" with Vivien Prideaux (above) and learned about the art of indigo dyeing.

A magical evening at the Minack Theatre to watch Pier Gynt, the weather was calm and mild and the sea and sky had amazing colours. The theatre was built in 1932, the first play shown was The Tempest, which is being shown again this year as it's the 75th anniversary of the theatre.
