One of our speakers Priscilla Lowry, is both a textile artist specialising in silk (fabric and yarn) and a university lecturer in medieval history. She gave an illustrated talk on women and embroidery in medieval art. It was fascinating and makes me wonder if I could somehow find the time to attend a few lectures before my longed for trip to the UK as it would certainly make visits to art galleries more interesting. After her lecture she showed us many of the garments she has designed - wearable art in the true sense of the word.
Meanwhile I am off to finish the housework and cook the dinner.
