Stage 3 Experimenting with different materials
For the next piece, I chose a range of materials to experiment with and decided to warp the frame up with paper string as I like the texture and wanted a more ‘rustic’ look to the piece. Fabrics chosen to weave with included strip of cotton fabrics, tapestry yearn, some knobbly wool, cotton yarn, raffia, various braids and some hemp yarn.
I included some of the techniques practised in the previous exercise: Soumak, Ghiordes knots and Curved wefts:
I was pleased with the end-result after the many hours it took to complete the weaving!
