A screen printing class

We got back from India on Monday evening and have endured four days of jet lag. I feel better today although I have run a screen printing course for bookbinders in Birmingham today. I have dropped in to Anne this evening and will drive home tomorrow. I tried to teach too many techniques today. I should have put all the materials for one technique into one crate. The students must have thought I was mad because I seem to spend a lot of time looking for things. Organisation was needed.

Going back to Delhi, we spent Sunday first at the Museum of Modern Art which was very good. No nonsense about Hockney or Warhol as in Japan, just lots of great Indian paintings. Then. Dorothy took me to Sarojini Market. Which was great. I took a t of photographs and I think they are the most interesting of the trip.

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.
