Stripes and checks

I am preparing a new workshop for Highland Guild in September. We’re going to explore the Goethe-Albers colour triangle and its associated ‘moods’ through weaving. And that is why I am weaving giant colour gamps to take with me….

I particularly like the contrast between a white weft and a black one.

I have cut off the twill pieces, so the next step is to drop a few ends and resley for plain weave.

Having slogged through the largest of the marking mountains last week, I only have one to go for this session!

    Aha! I’ve just finished a twill colour gamp and am about to resley for plain weave – something in the air?

      The bright coloured cotton is working for me! I can even pretend it’s summer…

        Hmm – when the sky is grey and the rain is falling?…

    Wow! That black weft really makes the other colors sing!

    P.S. I’d happily loan you some of our 90s andd 100s (F). Trade you for the rain?

    And how do you work the game in with Albers? So interesting!,!
