Beautiful scarf

I went to a talk by Lauren Crawford yesterday at our local branch of the Embroiderers' Guild in Peebles. She is a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee and is now getting established as a designer and maker of hand woven textiles. Her inspiration is Venice and the wonderful colours of that place can be identified in her absolutely stunning weavings. As you can see in my banner and background to this blog Venice is also very close to my own heart and Lauren has captured it in her own way and medium beautifully!

Needless to say the scarves proved too much to resist as far as I am concerned and here is a scan of a detail of the one I purchased, shown here with Lauren's permission.

Check our her website for more information and pictures of her work. She's only 24 and I'll bet her work will be finding it's way all over the world before too long!

This scarf is so beautiful. I can see why you couldn't resist. I went to her site and she doesn't seem to sell directly online :( She will do well as it's lovely and elegant work.

I also gave into temptation! With so many colours so beatuifully woven together, my scarf goes perfectly with any outfit...I love it!
