Sarojini Market

I referred to Sarojini Market in my last post but did not add any photos so here they are.

I went up to Birmingham on Sunday to teach screen printing to Bookbinders. The class was held in the Midlands Arts Centre which was heaving. There is a large park, a large café, two or three art exhibitions, classes on everywhere. The one in the room opposite was Life drawing. And families everywhere. Quite a place. The draw back is that hiring a room for a class is very expensive and I doubt if we will go there again. Nevertheless nice. Oh and the class went off well.

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.
