Weaving – looms

I visited some weavers near Safi. The looms are wonderful examples of finely tuned technology; minute working adjustments provided by apparently crude mechanisms; but in the right hands producing beautiful cloth.

Essaouira – colour

I spent two weeks in Morocco – and travelled to Essaouira for the 15th Gnaoua Festival. The quality of natural light is so very different to that in Wales; that I struggled with the overly photogenic nature of the place!
