2018 Wk 39 - Things I forgot about

When I blogged yesterday I, ahem, implied that I hadn't done much - and I believed it myself  . . . until I started getting stuff out for a class I am teaching on Friday at Chertsey Museum, and then I realised I've actually done quite a lot in the way of prep!

Usually everyone does the same, but they wanted to try weaving and I have a few sets of a lot of different methods, so this time we are doing this over 2 sessions so everyone gets a chance to try everything.  Of course this means me setting up everything so they can spend their 90 minutes actually weaving!

Triaxial weaving:

 Lace making (of a sort -I cant get the hang of this!)

Medieval cords

Weaving with a small loom and fine wool

Bead weaving

Straw weaving

 Chunky weaving

a different type of loom

French knitting / Knitting Nancies

and a super fast mechanical version

And hoop weaving

There are also 3 20" looms - two have been set up and started and one will be set up as a demo

So I have been a bit busy!!!!


  1. Wow, lots of variety there! Looks like a lot of fun.
    You are well organised!

  3. I would say you HAVE been busy x LOVE the colours in the top one x
