Iceland Day 2

Yesterday we flew to  Reykjavik and stayed the nigh t in a hotel. We started at 5am today. Flew  to Ayurik. And arrived at 0845! We were collected by the tutors, Niall and Charlotte Benvie and drove an hour to our hostel/cabins.except that we took in various sites to photograph and got in at 1700 hours.

So one large waterfall, one harbour, one volcano crater, one set of landscapes. And a lot of snow and incredibly cold. Here are a few photos to prove it.

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.
