Hi all, I'm new to this and struggling with the technology. I work full time and will post when time allows. Some of you expressed an interest in this group a while ago, so please let me know if you're still interested in being a member. For myself, I am based in the midlands of England, and have been weaving seriously for about 6 years. I am intrigued by the results of weaving with active yarns, and have been experimenting recently to see what works, what doesn't and try to understand why. My inspiration originally came from attending workshops run by Lotte Dalgaard and Ann Richards and regularly refer to their books 'Magical Materials to Weave' and 'Weaving textiles that shape themselves'.
It would be great to hear from others about your projects and perhaps some thougths about what you'd like to get out of being a member of this group.
Look forward to hearing from you.
This was a very fun study! Feel free to ask me any questions. We just did a project at school and make samples. The photos are those samples. Fiber, !00% silk, crepe, merino wool
Audrey that is so cool! Have you posted your samples as a project on the site? I would love to see your samples!
