I love weaving words into inkle woven bands.
In this picture, Tottie Tomato is wrapped in the words of Dame Julian of Norwich’s prayer:
And all shall be well
and all shall be well
and all manner of things shall be well…
I love this prayer and say it allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the time……….
To pay homage to Dame Julian and her wonderful prayer, I wove the bands that I used to shape her body (and her banner) on my inkle loom. I crocheted her hands and head, and wove the remainder of the elements of the sculpture on various other small looms.
I use a simple pickup technique for weaving words.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so I think I should put ‘do a video of weaving words’ on my to do list!
