Clyde Olliver visted our Guild in November and treated us to a talk and slideshow. It was interesting hear how Clyde's artistic career and work had developed from his working as a restorer of antique rugs, to doing to degree in textiles at Goldsmiths, to the present day. Clyde's working with slate and stitch developed from his referencing of his past (both his father and grandfather were builders)

Peggy Fearne saved the day for us in October when James Hunting cancelled on us at short notice. She came all the way over from Sheffield to treat us to her wonderful talk on the history of the bag, historical slides and a display of her sumptuous handbags.
