OTHER ARTWORKS BY ARTIST


Textile Art - Leaf in the Wind (preparation/warp up)
Getting the loom warped up for a tablet woven band. Gold, grey and cobalt blue mid-weight linen thread. Using 26 cards, of which about 17 are already set up, following the threading diagram which is half-hidden under the loom. The pattern that should appear is also shown - provided that certain card groupings are turned forward/back in their correct combinations. A separate weft thread is passed to and fro, between the upper and lower packs of threads, after every 'turn'. This 'locks' everything into place and changes the individual threads into a cloth band. And yes, the 'cards' on the loom are, in fact, just bits of cereal box with holes punched in the corners.


Textile Art - 'Chain of Command' (2)
Close up of portion of the band.


Textile Art - 'Chain of Command' Linen Band
The immortal 'Chain of Command' line.

The whole band reads: Do you know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and... (chain links graphic) Jayne Cobb (hat graphic) Firefly P.R.

Tablet woven in double face technique. Lettering using L Hendrickson's graphed alphabet + own adaptations. 40 cards in total, 4 threads/card, giving 160 threads. Fine 1 ply linen, in chocolate and orange colours. Band is approx 18-20mms in width. The ends are unfinished - will be plaited or sewn off - and give an idea of the individual threads involved.



Textile Art - The 'Hot Bunk' Hot Water Bottle
Take one old largish ball of brown wool and one newer ball of orange wool.

Add: one book on 'How to Knit', opened at the 'How to Cast On' page; your grandma's old knitting needles; lots of backbone-stiffening cups of tea; copious mutterings and imprecations; and a simple (very simple) knitting pattern which you then proceed to mangle beyond all recognition.

How's she sit? All warm and snuggly, say the toes.
