warping and weaving

October 27, 2016

the November Studio Tour is quickly approaching – too quickly!

weaving-finishing-410I’m # 12

 the conference sashes on the loom have to be finished

can’t risk making a mistake while talking !

and I need a colourful warp on the loom

that is easy to weave

p1100784so it is back to tea towels

if I make a mistake it is not a disaster

p1100786in the evenings I spin to unwind – ha ha

the muga and eri silk is finished

just starting 100 grams of bombyx silk

with a project in mind for laterp1100781

 meanwhile there are barrow loads of leaves to rake

p1100782and bamboo to thin

I cut the smaller pieces into manageable lengths

with the idea of using them to weave mats, first they will hang to dry

has anyone done this, is it worth taking the time?

    This is the last couple left in Korea making papermaking screens. You don’t have to be as precise for mats, but it’s always good to see what they do: https://youtu.be/a0PsSyjCigg

      Aimee – thank you, the precision and detail are wonderful. Anything I make will be very primitive. It is encouraging to know that the son is learning the craft, wonder if he can make a living.

    I think the mats might be worth trying just to see how it goes. I have bamboo too but it’s much too large unless split. We use it for garden stakes instead!
