graduation

April 10, 2015

the final class was very intense

everyone had finished their project – a log cabin scarf

P1060653now comes the revealing moment

P1060654cutting it off the loom

Kelly was weaving on her own loom, she could have taken it home to weave a few more samples

after seeing the others cut their work off she couldn’t wait

P1060667she had a great time sampling and already has plans for a baby blanket

P1060657oh oh! now it’s too late to change your mind

P1060661sampling is fun on a dark/light warp and just a plain weave threading

Helen has already put a sample warp on her floor loom at home

P1060656Tanja has lots to think about

P1060662she has already borrowed the bobbin winder to get started at home

P1060666everyone’s colours were similar

Tanja’s purple and soft celery green are a nice contrast for the log cabin pattern

the lighting just wouldn’t show the green

this was a hard-working class, great enthusiasm with 3 new weavers

I enjoyed it as much as the students.

    jean, i think you know one secret of teaching: you get to learn every time you teach! i love reading about your students.

      Velma – it is so much a part of the process – to make new discoveries along with your students.

    Congrats to the teacher on helping to create a bunch of new fledgling weavers! Cutting off should be a ceremonial occasion always – even if it’s just a sample.

    Those huge scissors crack me up–they mean business! This must’ve been a wonderful meeting for all of you–and they are all eager to continue!

      Kerry – yes, you would love them, they were on a table of tools at a second hand store – 2 for $8 they cost me $4.17! What a buy, think they were carpet layer’s scissors.

      Alice – it is lovely when the participants in a class “click”,learn together and admire each others work. No champagne, they all rushed home to get supper.
