Firstly, apologies for the delay in this post – deadlines, deadlines and work, work, work.
For our March meeting, which was a ‘spinning and weaving’ session, we decided to focus on the weaving. After all, we are the Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, and many of us have looms which we barely use, don’t use as much as we’d like, or are unsure of how to use. So we decided that it would be a good idea to encourage people to bring along their looms.
And they did! We had everything from a small, school-style loom,
to an assortment of planks which, when assembled, turned out to be a ladder loom:
One member was doing some almost saori-style weaving,
while others were taking a more classical approach,
Here are some more pictures from the day, including progress on the ladder loom; just click on an image for a slideshow. oh – don’t forget that the May meeting is an ever-popular felting workshop; there’s a list of things to bring on the ‘events’ page.
