The highlight of my weaving roller-coaster year has to be Tuesday 16th of June when the ABC TV crew came to film me for ‘The collectors Show’.
Normally I could talk for Ireland and Australia but I found I become a little tongue tied when put in front of a TV camera. I over came my new found shyness as the day went on but after a full day of filming (9.30 to 4pm) I will be getting an amazing 3 minute segment on the show. It is a national TV show on Friday nights on the ABC so hopefully weaving (and me) will get some attention from the television exposure.
I had a great day filming with the boys and I know they got some fabulous footage of the looms in action. I would do it all again in a heart beat. Maybe there is a future for me in broadcasting? lol
Thanks to Tara Pike who did my hair & makeup, David (director), Leigh (sound) and Armain (camera) and thanks to all that I mentioned on film but may get edited in the final cutting of my piece eg. Karen Richards, HWSD Guild of WA, Online weaving guild, Fibreworks, Leclerc, Anne Williams, Fiberswest, Wooleen Station and WAFTA to name a few.
