  1. Another great programme. By the way, have you tried typing in 'textiles' in the search box for the online programme? It brings up a series called Inspirations which includes interviews with several textile artists including Jan Beaney, Jan Littlejohn and Julia Caprara - all very interesting.

  2. Maggi, thank you very much for this great tip!
