A casemoth was on our door the other day and I accidentally grabbed it when I was shutting the door (a startling event that captured my attention!). Here is a picture of it on our brick wall. It is the inspiration for my work.
The first thing is to use card to allow me to hitch on in the shape I want. It is traditional to weave tapestry sideways, which suits the casemoth piece.
It is turning out harder than I anticipated to weave the first rows and to select the colours I want but hopefully I will get my head around it and not take too long to produce the work. It is about the size of an A4 piece of paper which is much bigger than any casemoth I have ever seen. I am taking artistic license in a variety or ways.
