Week 6: 18 February 2019

The sun is shining and I start with a meeting at the fourth silk business to join the project and the bit I really love, a look behind the scenes. Reels and reels of jewel bright colours, row upon row of shiny cobweb thin threads and a lovely team of people working away to create the most beautiful cloth, it feels like such a treat to see how they do it. Then on to one of the schools to meet the super busy but enthusiastic staff and we spend an hour wrestling with the timetable trying to find solutions to fitting the project around lessons, exams and the occasional school holiday. Thank goodness for tea!
