Reviewing presentation – Warp puddles

28 May

As I continue my presentation and prop review for my talks next week at the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas I giggle with delight at some of the tricks the Cambodian warping family taught me on Koh Dach Island. ┬áHere is one of my favorites, the warping puddle of fine silk in preparation for winding onto the back beam…..

This is one of the clips from my Cambodian Textile Tools talk…..not only tools but the relationship between the weaver and their equipment.

On the road teaching next week

25 May

Pulling together color props and reviewing lecture notes is always fun. One remembers past students’ questions and tries to answer the past while anticipating future questions. 

Below are my first pick of natural dye examples….fun to decide the color groupings.  Persimmon, indigo, madder & lichens are the colors from my Pedernales valley!

Below the photos is the Contemprary Handweavers of Texas conference link and the classes I will be teaching. Time to pull out more props!
