This morning I did battle with the snow to get from South Derbyshire to south of Sheffield to tutor a Colour and Weave Workshop for the Hallamshire Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.
I'm so glad I did because they worked really hard and produced some really interesting plain weave (tabby) designs. Take a look below to see the results:
Ten people signed up for the workshop and despite the weather only one person had to drop out.
Looms were pre-warped with a range of simple colour and weave patterns with a contrasting colour to differentiate between each pattern.
Here black was used to dramatic effect.
Some of the red warps were substituted with the blue and used in the weft in one of the patterns here.
By the end of the day each weaver had a good range of colour and weave sample patterns that they could use as reference for further colour and weave projects.
