oh, wow!

June 28, 2013

this is why sampling is worth the time and effort

and why photographing the process, in all the stages, can be helpful

2013 explorations 013

the weaving as it came off the loom

different weft colours – from the left – blue, pale yellow, red and dark and light green

2013 explorations 015

two are woven shibori and the other two were folded and block resisted

the two end pieces were discharged in a thiourea dioxide bath

the two center pieces were discharged in a black vat dye

2013 explorations 017

it is difficult to believe they are all the same warp

in some cases the  colours and yarns react to the thiourea dioxide in  extremely different ways

the winner

2013 explorations 018

and now to weave the final 2 yards

    yes, too all your comments, but what i like is the reminder that “things” happen, even to planned weaving. what i really wonder is what the next 2 yards will be!

      Heather – I love this technique because the results are always a surprise, weaving can be so predictable!
