In the Works

painted silk
Warping of the painted silk  has begun. It’s ready to be sleyed and threaded. The warp was painted earlier at a dye day at the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston‘s Guild House. I wasn’t excited about the results,  so I set it aside for a few months. Now I’m ready to put my design ideas to work. I will be threading an 8 harness manifold weave.  I’m still debating weft colors so that will probably need some sampling.
imageOn the inkle loom a new tablet weaving is in the works using three colors in the warp and 16 tablets .

There is still one loom naked so I hope this next week to work on another project for it.

    When I was still teaching at Wayland Academy I had many of my students woking on the inkle loom…I have a great pattern book some where in the house. If I find it I will send you some patterns from the book. Its a great little loom to work on. Terri
