Maggie September 08, 2014
Eco Textile Artist Rachel Powell held a workshop co-ordinated by Cabraich  in the Castle Grounds in Stornoway on Friday 26th September and at Barvas Community Centre on Saturday 27th September. The workshops supported by Hebtember and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar Arts Department were attended by twenty seven participants .

One workshop participant said “It was a wonderfully exhilarating and inspiring eco workshop in glorious sunshine.We spent the morning wandering around the grounds taking photos for
inspiration. Then we naturally dyed some cotton with berries and petals, to get
the most amazing colours. Rachel then set up a warp over the bough of a tree
and we wove all sorts of natural wonders as the weft, we even used Harris wool
knitted with twig needles! It was truly inspirational and uplifting!
