More on the Show

The top photo shows alpacas in the show ring. The lower one shows some particularly nice sheep which are Devon and Cornwall Longwools.

I like looking at chickens.
I spent this afternoon in the College printmaking class working on the lino-cuts for Sir Patrick Spens. We tried several different colours of ink. Everyone in the class had wildly different preferences - except that everyone agreed that a front cover I did with bright blue on it was wrong. That is easy to put right. But I will have to make my own mind up about the lino-cuts in the book.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
