Forest of Dean

We used to live on the edge of the Forest of Dean and I loved it. So I took everyone there last Wednesday and we had a lovely lunch in a pub in Longhope and then walked in the woods.  The wild daffodils were still out up there.

Away in the misty distance, you can see the scarp of the Cotswolds across the Vale (Severn Valley to outsiders). There are a few daffs in the foreground but if you turn around - -

I took many photos of trees and bark. Thinking about a piece based on bark. Maybe. Later this year.

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.
