Frame Loom Weaving 101

IMGP2647-1

Eager as I am, I bought some cotton yarn this weekend and began my first weaving sample this morning. The selection of yarn was extremely limited considering I wanted a completely natural fiber and Michael’s carries only one variety of 100% cotton yarn. Go figure. But if everything goes accordingly to plan I’ll be spraying or dipping my weavings into thin slip and firing them so that the cotton burns out and I’m left with ceramic “cloth”.

I’ve been interested in fiber craft for a while and intended to explore it for Senior Studio I. I was prompted to begin the process sooner than anticipated when I got an assignment in my wheel class to create nesting objects. Im interested in exploring the relationship between thrown and slip caste parts, as well as the difference between the materiality of clay and fiber.

About 5 minutes into the process…

…and an hour later.

I also used photo booth to record a really poor quality video of myself weaving a couple rows of this sample.
