Milos is hard work

We go for 7or 8 hours a day,arrive back at our studios exhausted and grubby. The first was incredibly cold and I had not taken enough warm clothes. I am learning a lot and taking a lot of photos. Only a fraction are any good.  We have visited early Christian catacombs, a Roman theatre, an open cast mine and quite enough quaint Greek fishing villages.




So there you are. The weather has got warmer and I got a bit sunburnt today. The food is excellent and I am learning a lot from the others in the group.

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.
