I'm updating my website with a slide show about warping my large loom. I thought I might post it here on the blog, too, but for right now here's the link to the slide show on my web page about that.
I'm getting ready to weave a large (for me) tapestry again. This is to be based on one of the images I did at the Steve Aimone directed studies workshop last fall. The four large pieces I did there were all abstracted images based on my time spent at Hambidge Center in late October and the many drawings, paintings and photographs I took there.
Here's the working image. I haven't done a mylar tracing of it yet but I know many changes will happen along the way of creating the tapestry based upon this. The tapestry will be the size of the original painting: 54" wide x 48" high.
This tapestry will be put on hold for a short time as the next few days lead to a grand adventure for my friend, Pat Williams and me. We'll be going to the home and studio of tapestry artist, Silvia Heyden, along with several other members of Tapestry Weavers South. We'll have an opportunity to spend time with this remarkable artist, see her work and hear her talk about it. What a treat to be able to visit an artist like her!
