What’s on: Minishant rural report

Anne Walker welcomed members and guests to the March meeting of Minishant SWRI.

She then introduced Brian Young who spoke and illustrated the story of “Textiles”.

The story of how various colours and lines from nature can be reproduced onto different textures and materials is fascinating; as is the wide range of natural and man-made materials which are then made into useful and decorative items.

Who would have believed that designer shoes could be produced from paper? The ladies who were present can say they’ve seen this with their own eyes!

All of these are designed and produced by Brian’s company “Yungi”.

Helen McAdam gave a vote of thanks.
