In the loom

Busy days - now the weavers finished their first attempt at the technique. First an exercise of capturing a color painted on paper in the loom. Secondly weaving a gradation from dark to light. Now they've started on their design of an egg.

The participants first task; trying to interpret a painted color in to weave and a gradation from shadow to light.

 We also had the opportunity to listen to Helena at Fornby Folkhögskola, where she gave a talk about how to create monumental textile art. Very interesting!

Lis Korsgren, a member of Team Hernmarck, came to visit. She was kind enough to show us how one can twine the linnen warp with a spinning wheel.
