Genoa Day 3

This gives an idea of the multilayeredness of Genoa

And this is taken looking down from the same spot.

I walked round Genoa from 0900to 1620 today and do not feel bad. So I have recovered from the tummy bug. We saw several churches, two palaces and a cathedral. We had sometime off so I went to see a big exhibition of German Expressionism, with 135 works from Berlin. I won't say 'Eat your heart out, Rosie' because you must have seen them. Lots of Nolde. But as I said to someone who inquired as to whether they should go. 'Yes but it is not cheerful'

I spent a lot of time tracking down abookbinder's museum in the old city only to discover it has gone out of business. Bah!

Another palazzo entrance

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.
