Photographic exhibition

I have got to the end of my photographic course and the grand finale is to have an exhibition. This caused a lot of heart ache as I selected a topic. In the end it was Making. I photographed people making things. The topics werer ceramics, quilting, furniture, spinning, lace etcetera up to 11 crafts. They were hung in the National Needlework archive. Below are photos of the exhibition hung in their café, one poster to a craft.

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.
