As part of my ongoing participation in a year long weave along of tapestry diaries, I am weaving small images for my Woven Women show of tapestries and other woven works.
I have just finished 2 new tiny woven pieces – they were both on the same loom, so I had to finish the second one so I could cut them both off the loom and finish them.
And, here they are: (They are each 11 inches tall).
‘Woven Women: Dreaming of Flowers’:
‘Woven Women: Looking Skywards’
Now that the loom is finally empty, I warped up, using a ‘Four selvedges’ technique.
I have begun a series of very very small tapestries that are 3 inches by 5 inches.
This is ‘Woven Women- May Day’:
I am making plaster frames for the series of 3 inch by 5 inch tapestries, and have started experimenting with how I will be painting them…. right now, the first one looks like a black blob, so there’s not much point in photographing it, but I will soon.
Weaving the tapestry diary pieces is just pure joy. 🙂
I am working on some larger pieces, too. Must take some photos….
