Sneeky peek!

I'm getting a new collection of woven, knitted coats ready to be shown at the Contemporary Textiles Fair, Teddington, London 8 - 10 March. Very exciting! I will also be taking a Saori loom to demonstrate freestyle weaving at the show, look forward to seeing some of you there!

Weaving with lots of lucious wools, hanspun art yarns, raw silks and fantastic fibres.

Saori weaving workshop - Feburary 4th 2013

I took the Saori weaving looms for a workshop with the Thorpe adult education group, near Norwich.
What a fun morning! Everyone had a chance to do some freestyle weaving on the Saori looms with colourfull yarns, fabulous fibres and fabrics.
While the pedals were dancing, others made little cardboard looms and wove samples in Saori style. Instinctively choosing colours and making wild textures. 

What to make with all these patches? Maybe a pocket? The start of a coat? or a group hanging? So many choices from wonderfull weaving!
Many thanks to all  for a lovely morning.

Wishing you joyfull weaving
