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.
