We saw the assignment that the second year students have and there was some discussion about different ways the weaving could be done. It is good learning for all of us.
You can see samples here and here. It seems that blogs are a great way to have a visual diary.
I am having trouble with my current tapestry, it has a wrinkle (or a bulge) and I wasn't sure why. It seems that I may have too much weft in it from not pulling and beating the weft quite tightly enough. Hopefully I will be able to reduce some of that when I sew up the slits. I have decided to do the sewing after the weaving as there would have been so many needles and threads hanging and I tend to tangle them. One of our members showed me how to do the sewing after the weaving. I suppose that I can try steaming the work if it still has bulges (I can hear the indrawn breaths of horror from some purists already).
|Can I call this warped? Or should it be wefted?|
