February 25,2020 Tapestry samples for larger project
It is incredibly sunny although but still pretty cold (34 degrees F) in London. I have been working out the details for a special project for my zoom buddies. I can’t post anything concrete as yet, (secret) )but my creative circle have given me their favourite colours, and their wrist size.
I have been experimenting with tapestry designs in a small format, and have found a great way to store my cottolin fibers for design purposes so I can view all of my colours at a glance instead of tucking them into storage. I will add a photo of this storage idea to this post for clarity.
I really enjoy working with interesting fibre, having spent part of my life raising angora rabbits, and belonging to groups with other artists who raised various fibre animals: sheep, goats, camel, and alpaca, I have had access to many choices of supply. Most of that is in storage right now, ready to be spun into custom singles.
For whatever reason however, I seem to be drawn to miniature tapestry excursions at the moment, but I am still relaxing with my big tapestry loom for a few hours each day.
I am debating whether or not to refresh my skills by taking an online course in tapestry weaving. The more I practise, however, the more my skills return. I may wait for a few weeks before I decide.
That’s all for this time.
