Sea separates from sky

Earth from sea

All things take shape

From darkness


Thomas A Clark, Farm by the Shore

 

Each one of us has a favourite place - somewhere we have been that makes us feel connected to the natural world.  This place could be down by the sea or high in the mountains, deep in the woods or sitting in a lush garden of flowers. 

 

Wherever your favourite spot on the planet, this weekend gives you the opportunity to translate it into textiles, in the form of a concertina book, with the option of including either your own words or a quotation from a favourite writer. Enjoy using collage and hand and machine stitch, to unfold the nature of your chosen landscape through the creation of a unique piece of textile book art.

 

No experience of textile art, book-making or creative writing is required. 

All materials are supplied.

Much of the attraction of this area of the country is the wildness it has retained as a result of the limited impact of human habitation.  Of course, this means that there are fewer choices of accommodation for the intrepid visitor, but there are still a wide number of options, many of which can be found on the Accommodation links page.

To read about an innovative community partnership approach to preserving and improving this landscape for the benefit of all, have a look at Coigach and Assynt Living Landscapes. To find out about the fascinating geology of this area go to North West Highland Geopark.
