going home

After a long hiatus i'm back to the loom, my take on slow cloth.
It is always a source of amazement and joy to discover that i am at my best while weaving.
The past year has been one of little loom work and a lot of exploration of new techniques, and that entails some risks. Like dilution and delusion.
The Saran wrap came in the shape of thisbook that will enable me to weave it all together in one piece. i'm so excited that you will have to pardon the pun :)

Basically what one does is weave adding a supplemental thread that then is gathered tight and the cloth is dyed creatig shibori patterns.
From then one is on one's own and can add or subtract as will. Printing, stamping discharging, overprinting, foiling...
As i see it the beauty is that one is creating the cloth that will be acted on.
This looks like a series.
