New classes! And other stories

Where does the time go? Before another week slips by, I must remember to mention that I have added new dates for weaving classes in the autumn – they are all available here.

I’ve been working my way through not one but two mountains of marking, but finally finished the last assignment this evening. So developments in the studio have been slow. And have seemed even slower because no loom is actually ready for weaving. Right now the Megado is waiting for a couple more bouts of this,


though the sectional warp beam is now full (I forgot to take a picture, but it’s looking very promising) and I am setting up a sampler on one of the table looms which is just half-threaded. For some reason, this feels like less progress than it actually is.

The picture above is wonky not from some artistic impulse, but because the weather has been utterly magnificent. The sun through the window was so bright that I had to lean over the furniture to take the photo pointing back the other way, or you would just see a mysterious silhouette of a warp. Potential logo for a weaver, perhaps?

I took an hour off this afternoon to visit Angharad McLaren’s Weavathon at the DCA. Great idea to get lots of people having a go at weaving during the Commonwealth Games.

    I rather like the wonkiness of the photo. It has an energy that head on pictures lack. Perfect expression of a new warp.

    I’ve just realised that it is even wonkier on the iPad than on the PC. I hope nobody feels seasick.

    your photo is perfectly kosher and with that beautiful warp it cannot possibly be qualified as wonky.
