Four new weavers

posted in: Blog, Front Page | 5

This week saw the last of the current series of weekly weaving classes and my four students are now Real Weavers. I am amazed and delighted by the wonderful weavings they have produced. They spent the first few weeks doing a ’round robin’ and trying out different yarns and threadings. However, for the last month or so they have been beavering away at their own projects — and now that they have finished you would hardly know they had taken the same course! When the time came for cutting off we rigged up a ‘display string’ on one of the warping boards…

…and had a mini photo shoot. I must say I did a pretty poor job of getting pictures which aren’t blurred, but here are some close-ups — I hope they will give you as good an idea of the weaves as possible given my technical limitations.

The looms are now bare and my studio is very quiet. I shall miss our Tuesday night weaves, but I feel very proud of these new weavers.

    I must say they’ve achieved much better results than I did in my first weaving class! Good students usually means good teacher…
