I’ve just finished weaving a new Woven Woman mixed media tapestry. LINK
Woven Woman (Essence) by Noreen Crone-Findlay (c)
I’ve made 3 video tutorials to show how I wove various aspects of her:
How I wove the ‘Galaxy’ circle at her heart: LINK using the Peg Loom
weaving with wire on weaving sticks
How I wove the narrow copper band around her face, using Weaving Sticks: LINK
And, the third video shows how I used a Lily Speed o Weave loom to weave a hexagon, using the ‘Flower of Life’ pattern, with spool knitted cord.
I spent several days shooting a video, showing how to weave the Flower of Life with wire, but the wire just doesn’t show up in the video. Sigh.
So back to the drawing board, and several more days, but this time, using spool knitted cord, because it shows up well in the video.
Flower of Life pattern woven on the hexagon loom by Noreen Crone-Findlay
You can use all kinds of things to weave this pattern that is a celebration of geometry- Lucet cords, wire, thread, yarn, art yarn, roving (use thread or embroidery floss or yarn to tie the intersections), t shirt yarn, fabric strips…. no limits!
By the way: In my etsy shop, there’s a great eBook:
