Art Deco Style

The photo above is of a black and white fabric (DPW) currently on the Megado which I think of as sort of Art Deco. It is finished, that is I have woven enough to make a bag. I have applied Fraystop to the top edge and, when that is dry, I will roll it forward until just unwoven warp is visible and paint the warp ready for the fireworks. Then that will have to dry. I hope to start weaving this evening.

Today I am going back to Bournville for a class with Annette Lucas. But before that I must sort out transport to Washington in September. I have discovered that the Complex Weavers Conference starts earlier than I thought and I would like to move my  flight earlier.

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.
