For the last few months, I have been working on a very large mixed media tapestry in my series of ‘Woven Women’.
This one is called: ‘Essence’.
She’s over 6 feet tall, and has about 2 feet of warp strands hanging below the lower edge, so she’s about 8 feet tall in total.
I used many different looms to weave her…. beginning with my ‘Story Loom’ (designed by Susan Barret Merrill of
Weaving a Life LINK)
I also used: A rigid heddle loom, a narrow band weaving loom, peg loom, weaving sticks, Star Loom, tatting and wire work.
I posted links to 3 videos that I made about various looms and techniques I used in weaving ‘Woven Woman: Essence” here: LINK
And, made a video so you can see her a little more clearly:
Happy Weaving, and here’s to Essence, however it reveals itself (or in this case: Herself).
