Weaving For Dummies

weavingboy

In recent months I’ve become mildly obsessed with contemporary and historic weaving. I cant decide if it’s the colors, the textures, the patterns, the cultural variations, or that pesky ‘craft’ word that constantly attaches itself to everything I like. In response to my obsession I built myself a crude frame loom out of canvas stretchers and found a stick and some yarn and may have possibly gotten myself really emotionally attached to the entire idea that I’m going to start weaving little patches of…woven stuff, but I’m really excited to see where this all goes. Clay will come into play at some point…gotta cross those material boundaries.

Anyway, here is a small collection of weaving videos I found on YouTube.

    Reading your posts about weaving and now looking at these videos, I think the linearity of weaving speaks to the work you make, and I can see now why you would be attracted to this art. Check out Hannie Goldgewicht, I think you might like how she’s able to combine two different creative processes.
