I am working on a series of woven piece, called, ‘Woven Women’.
Here is my most recent Woven Woman, ‘Dreaming the Well’.
I wove her on a peg loom.
Here she is, with the weaving complete, still on the pegs of the loom.
And, then, I got out my felting needles and spent many, many, many hours, felting the details onto her:
And here are some closer looks.
She’s 27 inches tall by 17 inches wide (69 cm by 43 cm).
Unfortunately, my camera messes with the colors and makes the edges harsher… the felting does soften things up very nicely.
The images are based on meditations, dreams and just whatever wanted to be woven at that moment.
I keep promising to show more of the Woven Women pieces, so I will post more pics of them throughout the next few days, so stay tuned!
Mustn’t leave without giving credit to my daughter in law, for many of the handspun yarns in ‘Dreaming the Well’: LINK
And, as always…. go gently and with joy!
