50 pairs of Hands

Julia Pelenyi's first attempt at tapestry weaving. Julia was inspired by "Family Plot" 1993, by Adrian Wiszniewski , a successful artist in the UK who is actually a painter. This image was created for/by Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh Scotland and measures 275 cm x 183 cm. and is in the book The Arto of Modern Tapestry: Dovecot Studios 1912. An excellent attempt for your first try!
Anne Pierson, Gainseville, Florida
Ann told us little about herself but we are glad for her contribution to the Fate, Destiny and Self Determination project. 

Wendy Hayden took this picture of me (and Helen Skelton in the background) holding up the completed section of the panel of Fate, Destiny and Self Determination co-created by the following 50 people. Another panel would welcome helping hands for the finishing work required on it. Looking to spend an enjoyable few hours in our weaving class/studio? Just show up and we will welcome your help.
