cotton seeds, and holy basil planted
My First day of spring weaving. This is a on going woven studio journal of weekly weft additions from almost empty bobbins, and bits from students yarns I have swept up.
The wonderful 3rd grade class who came last week blog link to the studio, to weave and do fibery things , sent me the most adorable thank you letters and drawings ever! I hung all of them up on the gallery wall.
.Here she is trying on some of my saori hand woven garments, koi pond, and the silk etherial top and scarf.
... and the indigo riff jacket
A glimpse into Silvia's introduction to Saori weaving . first stop she gets to choose her own yarns, any colors , then she she learned how to wind some bobbins to try saori weaving.
The sun cleared the tops of redwoods and started shining on the orchard and the deck so out we went rolling the wx60 loom.
Silvia took off her shoes, and just had fun relaxing while learning to weave in the Saori way.
Her first few hours of weaving off the loom experimenting with her her own yarn choices, linens, cottons, thick, thin on a wool warp.
and she wound a wonderful cotton warp.
We moved out on the deck again in the warm spring sun.
It was a beautiful peaceful two days, in the fresh sweet air , I enjoyed Silva's wonderful stories and sharing the love of Saori weaving with another very first time weaver.
Silvia just sent me this email I want to share....
thank you so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – wonderful pictures my folks at home will like them too, they are already very curious! J
It was absolutely wonderful with you, the way you are teaching, the way you are sharing your thoughts and experiences and specially
.. thank you for the delicious food you served me!!
You know what...I think I have got the fever – the so called “Saori-weaving-fever”.. :)) I miss weaving already.. just to sit down and do some pieces… so as soon as we have a proper place I just have to have a loom!
