Crazy weft Kasuri

Well, something went a little different to what I expected in my weft kasuri! It is very free form and improvisational looking when I wanted it to be ordered with design. I think I’ve found the error in my calculations for the weft allowance. I didn’t factor in a washed dyed weft length so I’ll work on that now. However, the design is still beautiful and I’m happy with it. It is very exciting weaving with bobbins full of  design, so I think the time spent is worth every second.

Kasuri effects range from nice subtle organisation to quite random marbled effects . It takes me lots of time to do my dyeing and tying but it doesn’t have to be that way!.

Kasuri or ikat techniques can mean unweaving and weaving to get the effects you want, so patience and planning can be vital in it’s process. These technniques are  unique and distinctive to woven cloth and other mediums copy the feathered patterns.

  1. I love the road to discovery when I am working, and “unworking”, on a project that didn’t quite do as it was told.
