252back.jpgSpinners will find tips from Klara Decker on how to spin the yarn they want for their project; Ann Fisher Rhodes shares how she did exactly that, then dyed and wove her yarns into a truly handcrafted silk corset.

Follow along with Dianne Hewitt as she tries out Maori flax weaving in New Zealand. Closer to home, Lorna Lindfield interviews Rachel Powell about her creative projects involving visitors to Ormsby Hall.
