The Story of An Island Artist . .

renovating a stone cottage, building a studio and keeping the rabbits out

Weaving an English hedgerow on a heddle frame . . . progress.

Getting back to serious artwork after a few months’ distraction on other things . . . that’s the trouble with being a self employed artist, just sometimes other pressing things have precedence.

Experimental weaving on my heddle frame has begun again. I am trying to use the frame to produce an abstract piece based on an English hedgerow.  Rather than using the shuttle weaving straight across the warp I am using a weaving needle to construct features. The weft gives a top to bottom structure.  The flowery coloured warp to the left of the image will be the ‘top’ of the piece, the foliage.  Imagine the picture here turned clockwise through 90 degrees, that is how it will be viewed.

The white area represents hawthorn flowers growing in May or June.
