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…
