Workshops without work
Another workshop in the weekend inspired fresh ideas in the studio. It’s like ‘there’s nothing new’- but there is, at least to me. Ruth and Anna came equipped with their own yarn ways and ready to re-purpose jewellery in their work. Diane wove a bag textile enhancing the jute textures throughout the cloth featuring pops of colours, and Sue began with a ‘ yarn dance’ for the wall but then seemed to be working towards wearable cloth as the weaving process and rhythm took over.
Just what our cloth is for is often separated from the actual weaving process in the Saori free style and sometimes accidental, serendipitous approach we take. We can’t help planning, but as we are ‘planning’ as we weave it can force us to let go of the strong desire to control the outcome.
Weaving with fellow humans, sharing stories, yarns and cloth. Thank you so much to the participants, Diane, Anna, Ruth and Sue.
