At the Contemporary Craft Fair in Bovey Tracy, workshoppers came to learn how to make silk paper. They were each given a goody bag containing silk fibres in a range of colours as well as carded sari silk. Happily they spent the morning creating pieces of silk paper to take home to use in their textile projects. While busy creating they made new friends, and talked about grandchildren, craft fairs, scrapstores and the various merits of playparks... amongst other subjects...
