Port of Osaka I

I have finished Port of Osaka I by adding red to the printed linocuts. If I had planned it better these would be would have been printed on a separate block.

On Friday I proofed the three blocks for No II. Two are fine, one is not and needs a lot of work. Since I will not get at the press until April 27th, I intend to retire to the garage and finish it off here. In theory I can print but it is tedious - and messy. We will see how Dorothy takes to the mess!

I went to the Guild Weaving Study Day on Saturday, spent most of the time gossiping! But say lots of lovely and interesting work. I must take the camera next meeting.

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.
