Experiments


On the May bank holiday I visited Lindisfarne (Holy Island) and picked up this miniature standing stone (it’s lying down here, but it really does stand)

With a view to scaling it up in the future, I increased the fossil mark to fit on the 4"x4" loom, and wove with the bone needle I made on a day course at the Weald and Downland Museum (using flint tools!)



Second version, with the mark woven at 90 degrees to the warp, giving a better curve.

I plan to use Ritual Landscapes and Standing Stones as the ‘model’ for my PhD studio practice in the first instance, so this all feeds into it.
