The Latest Experiment..

I am looking at ways to 'draw' using just tonal variation caused by the interaction between thin and thick wefts; the opposite to the incised marks I was working with before.

But some of the drawings I have done are in colour, and rectangular, and I really like them; they would have to be rendered in a more traditional form and sett; a dilemma or wot?

Oops; no posts for a month...

...but I am now back at WD and immersed in work. The new studio space is amazing; it is over in the Sussex Barn, which means that I get to walk through the walled garden every day to get there. Even when it rains it is beautiful, although I have invested in some new wellies and rain cape.
We began with a week of drawing, and have just had a week of 'pushing the boundaries' , using mad materials to weave with. I think I win the prize; I wove some conkers in, having drilled holes in them and run a string through. I have not photographed the stuff with hideous colours in

It is so good to be back here; the new group are lovely, and I think that it is going to be a good year.
