Eleanor Pritchard interview

One of our local designer-makers, the very talented weaver Eleanor Pritchard is interviewed in the Guardian weekend today as part of their 'disappearing acts' about indigenous crafts.

You can read the story here. There's unfortunately no mention of Cockpit Arts, but being a (very) amateur weaver myself and a great admirer of Eleanor's work, I recognised her studio and her work from the photograph.

If you haven't had chance to visit Cockpit Arts in Creekside, the next open studios is in a few weeks time. It comes highly recommended.

Thanks for the story link - Cockpit Arts open weekend is most definitely in the diary.

i love cockpit arms open weekend.
i've always been a bit shy but then when we finally went it was really friendly and welcoming.

would definitely like to highlight (and unite to co-promote) the local skills more.
