Preparations...

Right now there is a lot going on at the studio... In just a week 12 excited weavers will take part in Helena Hernmarck's weaving course "Skugga till Ljus" (From Shadow to Light) at Alice Lund Textilier's studio. 12 weavers = 12 looms that needs to be dressed. Since the whole idea of the course is to simulate the idea of how we work at the studio with Helena's tapestries the warp is the same kind as we usually use. 3 (or 4) threads of linnen 16/2 that is twined together. Wålstedts is often kind enough to help us do the twining but it can also be done on a spinning wheel. It can look like this;

The warps are in different colors because we have both beginners who will attend the course as well as weavers who have taken one of Helena's courses before. The more experienced weavers will weave a picture in color whilst the beginners will explore the technique in black and white. We have exciting weeks ahead of us...
