Coptic Book III

I do finish projects - honest. This is the Coptic Book using Michael's enamel samples mounted on sycamore board. The paper is handmade lokta and the thread is linen thread dyed green with Procion Mx dyes. Dimensions are 10 cm high by 9 cm wide.

I do like it.

I also dealt with endpapers (nice black and red) for Alice and decided that, if I protected the cover pictures with acetate, I could print on high class paper on the Inkjet printer. We are losing all the reds on the laserjet. So I will try that out before next Wednesday.

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.
