It has been a while since I have written about fibre fun. This is not because I have not been doing anything, quite the opposite. I have been doing so many different things that I don’t know where to start. I feel scattered, too many things to tell.
So I will start with my new studio. I have taken over the building where we used to make cheese and I love my new space.
I have lots of windows and light.
Electricity and water means I can listen to music and make a cup of tea.
My collection of woolly dolls to keep me company.
And a separate room for getting messy with felting and wool picking.
In this new space I can work on different projects at the same time. Like this weaving on my table loom.
With the four harnesses on this loom I can weave more complicated patterns, like the raised pattern on this scarf.
I have also been able to complete some projects that have been sitting around for a long time. A certain felting project that didn’t turn out right, (when felting doesn’t work) is finally finished.
I divided the strips into two colour groups and then wove them with a wool warp to make two separate wall hangings.
This month I have also been busy with my weaving class. We have been displaying are work at school shows.
There was a lot of interest in what we are doing, with a few sales and the possibility of new students.
Add teaching felting classes, and shearing, spinning and dyeing mohair, I have been quite busy. But I will leave those for another post.
