Lino cuts and paper

A lot has happened in the last week. Apart from sordid activities like weaving and tidying up, I went lino cutting and returned home with armfuls of prints.

A small selection. The next day we went to Art in Action and I bought a linocut, a cardigan and a whole lot of cards. Also some Turkish marbled paper.
I bought four sheets at a fraction of the cost in this country.
Art in Action was great. we saw all sorts of demos including one on glass blowing,
And today I ran the every-two-years class on acid dyeing. Everyone produced a lot of dyed yarn etc, which we hung up outside to dry.

I produced two skeins myself (Well you might as well do something for yourself)

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.
