One of the crappier things for tapestry weavers is that unless you are using a scaffold loom, you only ever get to see a small portion of the tapestry at any one time. As I advanced the warp last night I could not resist a peak. I have been focused on her for so long, it was pretty ace to see her in context. I must be pretty much half way by now so this will be the last time I see it until it gets cut off. No fracking here, earthquake free, ipad has the wobbles. #tapestry#tapestryweaving#weaving#weavingloom#contemporarycraft
I’m feeling the pull of the weaving loom today. I’ve had this incredible selection of wool from @patcantosdesign for a while now and I’ve found it to be just too beautiful to use, however now is the time. Angora, Wool Roving and the most luxurious Mohair that I’ve ever laid eyes on. My sweet little man loved it and so we took a look at the type of animal mohair comes from. We had a chuckle when we learned that something so luxurious comes from a straggly Chappy such as this funny fellow! I kid you not 😜 I hope you are having a blissful Sunday, I’m going off to warp up my loom 🌸 Jo xx
I still have 1 full Handspun rainbow skein which I'm itching to use, but it's just too special (anyone else ever feel this wayl 🙈🙈)!! I think I might save it for rainbow custom makes. 🌈💕 ▪
This beautiful piece, Lady Bug, is now in the shop 🐞
Somehow our crazy summer turned straight to fall (cold fall!) in a week and today might just be the most perfect rainy Saturday to do some shopping!
All my pieces are available in the Etsy shop (link in profile) but if you’re in Asheville, @atomic_furnishing is open until 6 today and you can see my pieces in person while you check out over 30 other makers + vendors in the same space!
Have you been yet? Who are some of your favorites?!
A series of small tapestries have been completed by each student, alongside learning the correct use of tools and focusing on design development. Students will return for a further 2 units later this year to continue their study. ⠀
