June!

June 1, 2018

happy June everyone – the months are flying by

the long dresser runner is finished

the client and I discussed weaving different borders on either end

hope she likes it

there was enough warp left to weave a small hand towel

it has a nice texture – I’ll use it again

I wanted to see what the weave structure would look like with both warp and weft the same weight

what’s next

woven pages, the sample book was woven in 2014

with some pages woven with kami-ito – shifu paper thread

so again this time – linen warp and kami-ito weft

it makes interesting pages with a little indigo yarn added

I’ve been wanting to experiment with this dye technique

the paper is Arches text wove, a good medium weight

dyed in a cookie sheet with strong tea, using madder chips and some rose leaves

baked in the oven at 250 degrees

the best marks appeared on the underside, I wonder if this is because the cookie sheet was old and blackened

more experimenting is needed, maybe on fabric as well

this is a great book, beautifully illustrated

with loads of fun ideas of creative things to do on paper

now I’m off to cook more pages!
