Art and Design in Picton with Peg with Peg










Like a magpie to silver, fibre artist Peg's eye is drawn to colour, and by chance, on a visit to Old St. Mary's Guesthouse in Blenheim we came across her work that adorns the walls there. We met Peg and could not resist the temptation of asking her to join our exclusive Locals and Landscapes Guides. With no hesitation she agreed and today we are pleased to offer the chance for our clients to enjoy a day with this gracious and fun-loving lady. Being introduced to Peg for the first time is a joy, her zest for life and passion for the Damask Loom has her today, at the age of 90, working away daily in the design of new and interesting art. Peg will introduce you to Damask Weaving with a difference and show you the beautiful art that she creates. Peg has worked with "World of Wearable Arts" (WOW) and on their 10th anniversary was both an invited exhibitor and model.
