The next THRILLING THURSDAY event is SPIDERWOMEN! on Thursday 6th December, at The Cut, Halesworth IP19 8BY, from 10.30 am to 1pm. THRILLING THURSDAYS is a series of themed, morning, events, exploring interesting connections between people, place and nature, which will take place every other month.
For Spiderwomen! we will be joined by Dr Eleanor Morgan, an internationally-recognised artist, illustrator and author, who has written about the fascinating human uses of spider silk in The Gossamer Days – Spiders, Humas and their Threads. Plus, we’ll be joined by Dr Helen Smith and artist Sheila Tilmouth talking about the rare ‘Fen Raft Spider’, silk scientist Dr Christopher Holland, and demonstrations by Suffolk-based weaver Diane Self.
