weaving on tv


A quick note to say that you only have another day or two to catch Chris Ofili - The Caged Bird's Song on BBC iPlayer; it's a fascinating glimpse into the process of creating the tapestry currently on display at the National Gallery. If you, like me, were disappointed that Grayson Perry's tapestries were machine-made, you'll find this programme hugely satisfying.

[Another gem on iPlayer at the moment, but nothing to do with craft, is an episode of Storyville: Accidental Anarchist: Life Without Government.]

And if you want your thoughts provoked a little further, Felicia's post last week about making and excess, Slow Fashion - Enough Is As Good As A Feast, was exceptionally thoughtful even by her own high standards; the comments section is worth a read too.
