Dorothy is here on a painting course for a few days and I came along as a hanger on to do some photography. Today I toured the local coastal villages and ended up at Brancaster #Staithe and at its harbour which is very muddy. I ended up in wellies and had to scrape two inches of mud off my sandals. However I admit to reading a lot about composition recently and tried to put my reading into practice. So I got a lot of much better than usual photos.

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.
