Off the Loom

On a very bright, but chilly, Saturday morning I took the train to Bridge of Allan for the British Tapestry Group AGM and workshop.
Off the train I stopped to admire this heron standing in the sun.
Through four different weaving activities we created pieces to be joined together in one collaborative structure, although with our donated tapestries.  A circular cardboard loom produced this jellyfish.
Woven trees, or is that a wine flute?
Hidden secrets inside matchboxes.
And yes, I have missed my stop.  And finally weaving on to branches.  How different these will look as the leaves fall. 
Together these create a structure.
Could this be a shelter?  Harnessing secrets, surrounded by a miniature forest, covered in magical charms?  You can see more pictures of the day here.
