|Experimental weaving piece 1 - I like the trailing ends|
Sunday, December 23, 2012
I intend to do a lot more experimental art this coming year. One of the things I have tried out is weaving - I've always thought it was not for me, too regular, but of course that was before I saw pieces such as this one from grace Forrest and heini karariina too. I had lots of strips of leftover fabric from dyeing pieces for a college project, which often come in useful for tying labels to things, but I thought I would try weaving them. Some are different widths or irregular widths which was what I wanted. It is just an experiment, which I spoiled eventually because I experimented further with it and painted encaustic wax on it - I hated the result, it spoiled the simplicity, and I threw it out. Sometimes experiments don't give you what you expected but of course from that we learn what we like and don't like.
